We’re checking up on Greenpoint’s 72 Box Street, a garage that is making the transition to apartments.
The development, designed by Issac & Stern Architects, will be six stories, with 50 residential units, Brownstoner first reported. The 35,868-square-foot project between Manhattan Avenue and McGuinness Boulevard will have ten apartments per floor, along with bicycle parking and recreational roof space, according to the plan exam application filed October 24th.
Here’s a rendering from Issac & Stern’s website, which notes that there will be a garage on the first floor:

The property traded for $1 million in April 2013, according to public documents. The lot was part of a package of six mixed-use buildings, acquired by an investment group led by Waterbridge Capital LLC, the New York Observer reported. The other properties in the $27 million deal were 170 South 1st Street, 185 North 3rd Street, 626 Driggs Avenue (which is becoming a five-story hotel), 280 Metropolitan Avenue and 290 Metropolitan Avenue.
