Construction at Extell’s 138 Willoughby, aka Brooklyn Point, is moving along quickly, with concrete now at the tenth floor. Once opened, the skyscraper will complete the City Point mega-development in Downtown Brooklyn. The mixed-use multi-building expansion has already produced two residential towers and a 600,000 square foot retail space with a food market, grocery store, event space, and movie theater.
The 720-foot tall structure will yield 686,800 square feet for residential use. 458 condominiums will be created. Sales have already started as of March, and it appears that the cheapest apartment, an $837,000 studio, has already been snagged.
The least expensive listing at the moment is an $874,000 studio on the 26th floor. The highest asking price listed is $3.275 million for a three-bedroom on the 45th floor.
The building will be crowned by the highest rooftop infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere.
SLCE Architects is the architect of record, with Kohn Pedersen Fox leading the design. Katherine Newman Design is responsible for the interiors.
Completion is expected by early 2021. With the site’s current pace, this seems guaranteed, with topping out likely occurring in 2019.
Recently proposed towers in the area include Gehry-inspired 11 Hoyt Street, 7 Boerum Place, the controversial 80 Flatbush, and 61 Dekalb Avenue. The most highly-anticipated development in the area is 9 Dekalb Avenue. Design by SHoP Architects, the building will rise 1,066 feet tall to become the borough’s tallest building and first supertall.
