Earlier this year, the 68-story condo tower Brooklyn Point unveiled its rooftop infinity pool, the highest in the Western Hemisphere. This week images showing off all of the building’s luxury amenity spaces were released for the first time, providing a peek at 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor perks for residents. In addition to a host of health and wellness and entertainment amenities, Brooklyn Point also has a 9th floor landscaped terrace with dining areas and a fire pit, in addition to the record-breaking rooftop retreat.

Developed by Extell, Brooklyn Point is a 720-foot-tall condo tower in Downtown Brooklyn designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF). The tower, located at 138 Willoughby Street, contains 458 luxury studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.
When the building topped out in 2019, the tower became the tallest in Brooklyn. It only recently lost this title last month, when 9 DeKalb Avenue, now known as the Brooklyn Tower, reached its summit of 1,066 feet.
Toronto-based designer Katherine Newman of Katherine Newman Design handled the building’s interiors and amenity spaces, combining “art and utility,” according to the developer.
Wellness-focused amenities at Brooklyn Point include a spa, with a 65-foot indoor saltwater pool, hot tub, infrared sauna, steam and locker rooms, and sports facilities, which includes a squash and basketball court and a fitness center with studio space, a rock climbing wall, and training rooms.
Designed by Newman with a 1950s Scandinavian vibe in mind, the triple-height “Park Lounge” features a bar, salon, fireplace, and co-working space, all with industrial elements inspired by Brooklyn’s history. On this level, there’s also a chef’s demo kitchen, game lounge, wine room, screening room, children’s playroom, and a wine room.
Neman describes the spaces at Brooklyn Point as “industrial chic” and “hipster aesthetic,” according to a spokesperson for the project.
MNLA, the architects behind Little Island, designed the building’s 9th-floor terrace, home to places to grill, dine al fresco, and lounge around a fire. It also opens to a wrap-around terrace overlooking Willoughby Square Park and features a children’s playground and a putting green.

MNLA also designed the roof deck, home to the 27-foot-long infinity pool that provides near 360-degree skyline views. It’s heated and will be open to residents spring through fall. The roof deck includes lounge chairs, al fresco dining areas, an outdoor movie screening space, and a stargazing observatory.
Closing commenced and move-ins began last year. According to CityRealty, current units available for sale at Brooklyn Point range from an $847,620 studio apartment to a $2,875,000 three-bedroom apartment. Buyers also benefit from a 25-year tax abatement, one of the last remaining in the city.
