Two months ago, YIMBY featured a new set of exterior renderings for Brooklyn Point, which is Extell’s first skyscraper in the Outer Boroughs. It will soon begin rising at 138 Willoughby Street, and will temporarily become the tallest tower in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, we have an exclusive first look at interior renderings for the project’s condominiums, which are being designed by Katherine Newman.
138 Willoughby Street
The ongoing Downtown Brooklyn development boom has already resulted in three new “tallest towers” for the borough, with 388 Bridge, then AVA Willoughby, and now 333 Schermerhorn taking the title, at 607 feet to parapet. But while each of those projects stands just a few feet above the others, Extell’s Brooklyn Point, at 138 Willoughby Street, is going to top-out 68 floors and 720 feet above the streets below. Now, YIMBY has a look at new renderings that paint a much more vivid picture of the skyscraper’s eventual impact on the DoBro skyline.
Among New York City’s developers, Extell has perhaps been the most active in building projects that soar sky-high. With the firm’s supertall at 217 West 57th Street well under construction and 252 South Street even farther along, work is now advancing on the company’s first Brooklyn skyscraper, which will become Citypoint’s third, and tallest, tower. The latest photos of progress come from YIMBY Forum user Streetscaper.
Excavation work is well underway at the site of a planned 59-story, 458-unit mixed-use tower under development at 138 Willoughby Street, located on the corner of Flatbush Avenue Extension in Downtown Brooklyn. A photo reveals multiple excavators active on site, as well as footings for the foundation. The latest building permits have the project measuring 686,830 square feet and rising 696 feet to its parapet.
Last summer, the Times reported that Extell had acquired the third and final piece of City Point, a sprawling mixed-use development in Downtown Brooklyn. The developer rolled out initial renderings for their 59-story tower at 138 Willoughby Street in January, and now we have a better look at what will eventually be one of Brooklyn’s tallest towers.
