Lendlease Commences Abatement at Greenpoint Development Site
Lendlease has commenced abatement and demolition at 1 Java St., a 2.6-acre site on the Greenpoint waterfront in Brooklyn. Acquired by Lendlease in partnership with Aware Super last October, the site will contain a mixed-income and mixed-use community, including approximately 800 rental apartments.
Demolition of the site’s existing buildings is anticipated for completion by October. The project will also encompass a reimagined public esplanade with improved connection to the India Street Pier and NYC Water Ferry, along with ground-floor retail.
“The commencement of the demolition process at 1 Java is an exciting milestone in our process of redeveloping and revitalizing a key portion of the Brooklyn waterfront,” said Isaac Henderson, development director at Lendlease. “We look forward to continuing to lean on insights from community organizations to inform and accelerate the creation of a resilient, sustainable, inclusive and bustling residential community rooted in the unique history and culture of Greenpoint.”
