In October, Extell Development released a website with details about their luxury high-rise planned for Downtown Brooklyn. Two months later, they’ve released additional renderings of 138 Willougby, their first outer-borough tower. As YIMBY learned, the 720-foot skyscraper called Brooklyn Point, temporarily the tallest in Brooklyn, will have 458 condominiums designed by Katherine Newman that focus on blending “Brooklyn industrial chic” with a “refined mid-century aesthetic.”
The designer will emphasize an American aesthetic of the 1950s. The building’s lobby features a ceramic wall art installation inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s iconic Pop Art style and the suspended light structure above the front desk was influenced by Bertoia’s panel sculptures of the same era. The light wood pays homage to the Scandinavian influence of 1950s America, with the industrial-looking satin copper wall cladding complementing it throughout the building.
Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, with SLCE Architects as the architect on record, the 68-story skyscraper will feature oversized windows with views of Brooklyn and Manhattan skyline and waterways. The tower will contain 458 luxury studios to three-bedrooms, ranging in price from $840,000 to over $4 million.
Residents will be able to enjoy 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, including a garden room, wine room, game lounge, children’s playroom, bike storage and a 65-foot saltwater pool. Plus, the building is just seconds from the massive DeKalb Market Hall, Trader Joe’s and the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Brooklyn Point will be one of the borough’s tallest residential buildings upon its 2020 estimated completion.
