Construction on the final City Point tower is getting underway in Downtown Brooklyn, two years after developer Extell filed plans for the building, new construction site photos by Brownstoner have revealed. Located at 138 Willoughby Street, this skyscraper will eventually stand just under 700 feet tall and bring 450 market-rate condos to the neighborhood.

Designed by SLCE Architects, the condo building is one of three residential buildings that are part of the City Point megaproject. Aside from the apartments, the building will feature retail on the first three floors. Amenities announced so far include a swimming pool, bike storage and a terrace on the fifth floor. Considering its location and the name-brand developer, expect many more swanky amenities and features to be revealed in the coming months.

Work on the foundation is just getting started, based on the construction photos. The project came about after Extell purchased the site in the summer of 2015 for $115 million. Construction isn’t scheduled to wrap until 2020, but once complete, this tower will be one of the tallest in Brooklyn.

The first two residential buildings at City Point, both designed by COOKFOX, were completed last year.
