A few months after work got underway on the final City Point tower in Downtown Brooklyn, the developer behind the project, Extell, has now released a host of new renderings for the 68-story condo building.
YIMBY first reported on these renderings, which offer new looks at the exterior, and several interior spaces including the art-filled lobby, a wine room, a swimming pool, and what appears to be one of the master bedrooms at the development.
Extell brought on Katherine Newman to work on the interiors of the project, dubbed Brooklyn Point. In her designs of the condo, Newman has tried to blend American and Danish mid-century design. She also described it as the “refined interpretation of the nouveau hipster aesthetic.”
In the building’s lobby, for instance, there will be a ceramic wall art installation inspired by the palette of Roy Lichtenstein; a suspended light sculpture above the concierge desk that is inspired the work of Harry Bertoia, particularly his panel sculptures of the 1950s; and suspended clouds above the seating area that are inspired by Ruth Asawa’s crocheted wire sculpture, also from the 1950s.
When complete, this Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed tower will stand 720 feet tall, and briefly hold the title of Brooklyn’s tallest tower, but will eventually be surpassed by 9 Dekalb Avenue. Brooklyn Point will have 458 apartments, and 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities. Construction is expected to wrap in 2021.
