Extell’s first Brooklyn tower has been in the works for just about three years now, but it was only this past summer that construction on the skyscraper—a more than 700-foot-tall condo that’s part of the larger City Point development in Downtown Brooklyn—got underway.
And now that work is happening at the site, the famously tight-lipped developer is finally offering some details on the development, which will be the tallest tower in Brooklyn when completed. (For a little while, anyway—it’ll be bested by JDS’s nearby tower at 9 Dekalb Avenue, due to rise more than 1,000 feet.) A new teaser site for the condo doesn’t offer too much intel—though there is a new rendering of the building’s crown—but here’s what to expect.
As previously reported, Kohn Pederson Fox will design the 68-story skyscraper, called Brooklyn Point, which will have a whopping 458 apartments. (That’s a change from its previously reported height of 57 stories and 692 feet.) They’ll range from studios to three-bedrooms, and prices will, predictably, be high; units will go from $840,000 to more than $4 million. (Hey, that’s still cheaper than the cheapest apartments at Extell’s One57.)
While there aren’t many details on amenities yet, it’s a good bet—given Extell’s other buildings—that they’ll be outrageous, with “abundant entertainment areas” and “unrivaled outdoor amenities” promised by the developer.
Brooklyn Point is the final piece of the City Point puzzle; the megaproject’s other residential towers, designed by COOKFOX, opened last year, while its retail component—featuring a Trader Joe’s and the Dekalb Market food hall—has been rolling out in phases since 2016.
