Another piece of the development of Greenpoint Landing is coming into focus.

Brookfield Property Partners pre-filed an application with New York City’s Department of Buildings to construct a 31-story, approximately 380,000-square-foot residential tower at One Bell Slip, across from the developer’s One Blue Slip rental property.

The new building will house 408 units, according to the filing. Amenities include a fitness center and pool.

The new tower is one of two additional rental towers Brookfield announced earlier this year it will build at the 22-acre site along the Brooklyn waterfront, which it is developing with Park Tower Group.

Over the summer, Brookfield bought into the two development sites – one on Commercial Street and the other on West and Eagle Streets – valuing them at $148 million.

Brookfield did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Park Tower Group declined to comment.

Brookfield originally joined the Greenpoint Landing, which is being designed by Handel Architects, in 2015.

When completed, the Greenpoint Landing megadevelopment will have up to 5,500 residential units, with 1,400 of those affordable, plus a waterfront park, retail space and a school.

One Blue Slip, a 30-story tower with 359 market-rate residential units, opened over the summer and is now leasing.

Elsewhere, Brookfield is developing 1,300 rental units in the South Bronx, where in September it paid $165 million to buy a large development site from Somerset Partners and the Chetrit Group.
