On Wednesday night, Extell revealed its 57-story, 692-foot City Point tower to Brooklyn Community Board 2 (h/t Brooklyn Paper). When the tower was first announced, it was poised to become the tallest in the borough. But that's all changed now that JDS has come along with plans for a development that's nearly twice its height. Extell's tower is still in the approvals process, so the renderings may not reflect its final design. A rep for Extell says the company is still deciding whether the building's 500 apartments will be rentals or condos, but they're leaning towards the latter.
The white tower will have its own built-in exterior cleaning devicea feature that Extell has come to include in more and more of its developments. Construction on the tower is poised to begin in 2017 and wrap up in 2019.
