Nestled along the East River, 1 Huron offers a unique, community-oriented way of living in Greenpoint. The two-towered multifamily building boasts unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline and unparalleled access to Brooklyn’s expanded waterfront park system.

1 Huron is defined by two 13-story towers connected by a shared lobby, whose stepped forms narrow on the higher floors. The two-tower massing maximizes the possibility of unobstructed views across the East River, taking advantage of its exceptional waterfront location.

The building’s glass and steel towers reflect Greenpoint’s industrial heritage, while the rough brick podium is inspired by the materials and scale of surrounding warehouses. The heavily gridded façade is comprised of a window wall system, featuring I-beam profiles on the piers.

Within, interiors are defined by sleek but timeless materials. Kitchens feature white lacquer cabinets and Calacatta marble, as well as integrated appliances. Each tower includes four penthouse units and numerous 3-bedroom apartments intended to accommodate families.

Residents at 1 Huron can enjoy numerous amenities, including a pool, gym, yoga studio, sauna, co-working space, catering kitchen, and outdoor playground. The communal roof space features a shared garden, movie screening area, and grills.

1 Huron provides residents with direct access to the Brooklyn waterfront park system, which serves as an extension of the building’s numerous outdoor amenity spaces.
