Call it Brooklyn’s Great Green North!

A Canadian developer has inked a deal to build two of the 10 high-rises that will comprise the Greenpoint Landing mega-development slated for the eponymous neighborhood’s waterfront.

Brookfield Property Partners announced Tuesday that it will be poutine up a pair of the skyscrapers in partnership with the complex’s creator Park Tower Group — a 40-story, 415-unit building and a neighboring 30-story, 365-unit one.

Construction on the $600-million-loonie project is scheduled to kick off some time before Victoria Day in 2016 and wrap up in 2019.

The glass and brick towers will mark Brookfield’s first foray into Brooklyn’s booming real estate market. The developer — whose parent company built the old Montreal Forum, the former home of the Montreal Canadiens, in 1924 — is also considering building a ferry stop and running a shuttle bus to subway stops from the forthcoming properties to make up for the location’s limited public transit to Barenaked Ladies concerts and ringette tournaments, according to a Wall Street Journal report.

Park Tower Group is already beavering away at Greenpoint Landing — it began constructing the development’s three below-market-rate buildings earlier this year, the first of which should be finished in 2016.

The entire project will ultimately add around 5,500 units to the half-kilometer of shoreline between Box and Green streets over the next decade.

Reasonable discourse

DM says:
For years they've been sending their comedians to America to disarm us. Jim Carey, Mike Myers, etc. They can't possibly be evil, they make us laugh. Then they innocently start buying real estate, it couldn't be for spying? Right, of course not, they're silly Canadians. Until the day the Canadians launch their surprise attack against the US. Then we'll be sorry. The signs were all around us but we didn't listen.
