Brooklyn Point’s luxury condo tower at 138 Willoughby Street will be the tallest residential building in Downtown Brooklyn at 68 stories. This tower rises up 720 feet, which is almost 100 feet higher than Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Hotel with its rooftop pool.
Furthermore, Brooklyn Point’s 27-foot-long infinity pool, which will sit atop the tower, will not only be the highest rooftop pool in the city, but also the highest rooftop infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere!
On the rooftop recreation terrace, the mosaic glass-tiled pool will give residents and visitors a spectacular sky-high view as they look over the East River to Downtown and Midtown Manhattan. The pool will be open from the spring through the fall, be surrounded by lounge chairs, encourage sunbathing and socializing on its Brazilian wood deck, and enhance the view with planters filled with shrubs, flowers, and trees. The pool deck will have a star-gazing observatory, open-air movie screenings, lots of space for al fresco dining, outdoor showers, and changing rooms.
Scheduled to be completed in early 2021, this tower will cater to those who are extremely well-heeled and able to pay the prices starting at $840,000 and going as high as $4 million for the 458 units in the building which will include studios up to three bedrooms. Katherine Newman is designing the interiors in what she calls “refined mid-century aesthetic” and “Brooklyn industrial chic.” Other amenities include yoga studios, wine rooms, a fire pit, and a Roy Lichtenstein-inspired ceramic wall art installation in the lobby.
The building was developed by Gary Barnett of Extell Development and is their first project located in Brooklyn. They also developed the first residential building on the Billionaires’ Row at 157 West 57th Street, which has the most expensive condo in the city at $100 million.
Brooklyn Point was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, and the architect is SLCE Architects. This tower is the last phase of the City Point Development, which complex already has two residential towers located above a 600,000 square foot retail space with Trader Joe’s, a Century 21, a Target, and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
