Not only will Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie have some of the most insane views in New York City, but he’ll be just a 15-minute walk from the team’s court at the Barclay’s Center. The New York Post reports that Dinwiddie is in contract to buy the penthouse unit at Brooklyn Point, the 720-foot-tall tower that is the borough’s current tallest residential building and boasts the highest rooftop infinity pool in the western hemisphere. The 68th-floor apartment was last asking $3.9 million.
Dinwiddie joined the Nets in 2016, and in 2018, he signed a three-year contract. This year, he’ll be joined by big-name players Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, an addition that is sure to increase both ticket prices and local interest in the team.
Brooklyn Point topped out this past April and is on track to be completed by 2020. Developed by Extell and designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, it will contain 458 luxury apartments, ranging from $850,000 studios to the $3.9 million penthouse. In addition to the rooftop heated pool and lounge area, Durant will have access to 40,000 square feet of amenities, including an indoor saltwater pool, 35-foot rock climbing wall, sauna, wine room, pet spa, game lounge, and, most importantly, a basketball court.
The corner penthouse sits 640 feet in the sky and measures 1,445 square feet. As 6sqft previously reported, it has a split-bedroom floorplan, three bathrooms, white oak floors, and an eat-in kitchen with quartz slab counters, a wine fridge, and Miele appliances. Of course, the oversized windows afford incredible views, which some say reach as far as the Rockaways and northern Manhattan, according to the Post.
Closings are expected to begin in early 2020. It’s worth noting that Brooklyn Point has one of the last remaining 25-year tax abatements in the city.
