The 68-story, 720-foot-tall skyscraper Brooklyn Point is on pace for its 2020 debut as work on its façade is wrapping up in Downtown Brooklyn. The Extell development also known as 138 Willoughby Street is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, and is part of the third and final phase of the City Point complex. Closings for the 458 residential units, which range from studios to three-bedroom units, are expected to begin early next year with pricing starting at $850,000. AD 100 designer Katherine Newman is in charge of the interior design.

New photos from street level and from City Point show that the completed state of the curtain wall. Work continues on the roof parapet, where the highest residential infinity pool in the western hemisphere will be located.

  1. It’s not exactly my favorite, but it’s certainly far and away the best looking building of the City Point complex. The pointed roof is a nice touch.

  2. infinity pool looks great. requires infinite membership fees and velvet robes bods for sure

  3. Tuesday 08/13/19 It’s tallest building in Brooklyn. I would love to visit the rooftop pool. On opening day. I thank you in advance. I resided at 175 Willoughby st.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! This neighborhood is changing rapidly. It is unrecognizable from just a few years ago.

  5. Gee, a real tall building in Brooklyn – all the while they’re playing an endless game of “sandbox” at the practically sea level site of 9 DeKalb.

    • Yeah they’re moving really slow there though I did see some work being done last week sometime so it’s definitely not a stalled project.
