Brooklyn, NY According to Extell Development Co., it has started closings and first move-ins at Brooklyn Point, located above City Point, a 600,000 s/f retail, dining and entertainment complex. The property features views and over 40,000 s/f of indoor and outdoor amenities, including the highest residential infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere.
“Brooklyn Point’s success is a testament to the reputation of the Extell brand, as well as the building’s incredible amenities, breathtaking views, and amazing value coupled with a 25-year tax abatement,” said Ari Alowan Goldstein, senior vice president of development at Extell. “Additionally, with the neighborhood continuing to reopen and the area’s energetic atmosphere returning to a new normal, residents will be thrilled to call Downtown Brooklyn home and enjoy everything it has to offer.”
In addition to closings commencing, and the return to in-person appointments and tours, the building’s first model residences will be unveiled. Designed by locally-based interior design firm White Arrow, the firm developed a unique story and color palate for each of the spaces, taking inspiration from Brooklyn Point’s interior designer Katherine Newman. Additionally, White Arrow incorporated many custom pieces from local designers into their design in an effort to celebrate and support the community. The firm sourced 100% hand painted wallpaper by Sarkos, rugs from Pieces and Cold Picnic, and furniture and lighting from Sun at Six, Moving Mountains, Pletz, Bower, and more.
Situated across the street from the new Willoughby Square Park, the 720-ft., 68-story building was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and offers 483 residences ranging from studios-to-three-bedrooms.
Adding to the building’s allure are lifestyle amenities and services spanning over 40,000 s/f. In addition to the highest residential infinity pool, the landscaped rooftop is outfitted with a sundeck and an outdoor movie screening space. The health and wellness offering includes a 65’ indoor saltwater swimming pool, 35-ft. rock climbing wall, studio rooms, and a squash/basketball court. To complement residents’ wellness experience, Brooklyn Point’s spa will also include an infrared sauna, steam rooms and a hot tub.
