The soon-to-be tallest skyscraper in Brooklyn is now on the verge of truly towering heights. Since YIMBY last visited Brooklyn Point, the concrete has risen 20 additional floors above street level. The installation of several segments of the façade has added another new element, offering a glimpse at the glass and white paneling soon to dominate the borough’s skyline, at least until 9 DeKalb’s imminent rise nearby. Extell is responsible for the development.

The 720-foot tall structure will yield 686,800 square feet for residential use. 458 condominiums will be created. Sales have already started in March of this year.

The building will feature an extensive list of amenities across 40,000 square feet, as is typical of Extell’s projects. They break down into the categories of wellness, sports studios, and entertainment space. The highlights include a wine cellar, rock climbing studio, screening room, outdoor terraces, a restaurant, lounge, grills, a spa, and a rooftop infinity pool.

Brooklyn Point’s title as tallest building in Brooklyn is expected to be stripped quickly by the aforementioned 9 Dekalb. The tower, developed by JDS Development and Chetrit Group, has a proposed height of 1,066 feet. If completed, it will be Brooklyn’s first supertall.
