After several years of rendering-peeping, we finally have the full reveal of Brooklyn Point‘s rooftop infinity pool, situated 680 feet above the ground. This makes it the highest such pool in the Western Hemisphere, surpassing the famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel pool in Singapore. The condo tower from Extell also has the distinction of being the borough’s tallest tower and offers other amazing amenities such as a stargazing observatory, 65-foot indoor saltwater swimming pool, a rock-climbing wall, and a squash/basketball court.

Brooklyn Point is Extell’s first development in the borough. They’re the same firm responsible for the 1,550-foot Central Park Tower, the world’s tallest residential building. It was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and rises 720 feet and 68 stories. (It will eventually be usurped by JDS’ 1,000-foot building rising at 9 DeKalb Avenue.) Brooklyn point has a total of 458 apartments, studios to three-bedroom residences starting at $900,000. In late 2019, Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, purchased the building’s $3.9 million penthouse.

The rooftop infinity pool is 27 feet long and provides nearly 360-degree panoramic views of the skyline. It’s heated and will be open to residents spring through fall. The entire roof deck was designed by Matthews Nielsen Landscape Architects and includes lounge chairs, al fresco dining areas, an outdoor movie screening space, and a stargazing observatory.
On the ninth floor, the triple-height Park Lounge offers a bar, fireplace, multiple lounging areas, and co-working spaces. It also opens to a wrap-around terrace overlooking Willoughby Square Park. Other amenities include a chef’s kitchen, wine library, game room, outdoor bar with fire pits, outdoor putting green, screening and performance room, indoor/outdoor children’s playroom, pet spa, and stroller valet. The fitness center includes a state-of-the-art gym, 35-foot rock-climbing wall, rooms for yoga, pilates, and spinning, and a squash/basketball court. The spa has a 65-foot-long saltwater pool, oversized hot tub, infrared sauna, and separate men’s and women’s steam and locker rooms.
In addition to these in-residence amenities, Brooklyn Point is part of the larger City Point development that has over 600,000 square feet of retail including Trader Joe’s, DeKalb Market Hall, Target, and the dine-in Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
