In Greenpoint, the northernmost neighborhood of the New York City borough of Brooklyn, the development called Eagle + West presents two high-rises which complement one another and a smaller third building. The towers – rising 30 and 40 floors – include affordable apartments. In a play of inclinations where forms expand and contract strategically, the project led by Jason Long of OMA stacks volumes on top of one another, with terraces and stepped overhangs. The taller tower becomes wider eastward the higher it soars, maximizing views. The shorter one broadens toward the ground to face a new waterfront esplanade. In this way, the two are connected by the void between them. Subdividing the facades in blocks of seven or eight stories echo the scale of the neighboring buildings. Prefabricated concrete panels wrap the complex with reliefs carved in different directions to emphasize the dynamic fragmentation.
