New York-based developer Extell has surpassed another milestone for 138 Willoughby Street, aka Brooklyn Point, in Downtown Brooklyn. Construction workers have now lifted and assembled the steel frame for the highest residential infinity-edge pool in the western hemisphere. The 27-foot-long pool is now in place on the roof deck of the 68-story, 720-foot-tall skyscraper, part of the third and final phase of the City Point complex.
Excavation work is in full swing at 368 Third Avenue in Kips Bay, the site of a new 35-story mixed-use residential tower, and today YIMBY has a first look at renderings for the project. Located between East 26th Street and East 27th Street, the building is designed by SLCE Architects. Minrav Development purchased the site from Continental Ventures and Itzhaki Acquisitions for $64 million. Plans call for a 388-foot tall, 145,000-square-foot structure yielding 100 apartments, averaging around 1,110 square feet apiece.
