Construction on Brooklyn’s soon-to-be tallest residential building has just hit a milestone. The Extell project at 138 Willoughby Street, named Brooklyn Point, has surpassed the halfway mark to its 720-foot-tall height.
A new set of photos from New York YIMBY shows that the Kohn Pedersen Fox and SLCE Architects-designed building has also began receiving its facade on the bottom podium floors and above the podium, a few more exterior panels have been installed.
Once the project is complete, there will be 485 condos, asking from $837,000. Sales launched back in March with prices asking as much as $3.413 million for a three-bedroom. Interiors are being designed by Katherine Newman Design and will feature oak flooring, imported stone accents, floor-to-ceiling windows, and Miele appliances. Building amenities will include the “highest rooftop pool in the Western Hemisphere,” a rock climbing wall, a pet spa, a game lounge, a stargazing observatory, and more.
Construction is expected to wrap up some time in 2020.
