The tallest residential building in Brooklyn was crowned this week with the highest infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere. A video released by Extell shows a 27-foot-long pool being hoisted 680 feet in the air, taking its place atop Brooklyn Point. The 68-story tower, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, topped out in April and sits as part of the Downtown Brooklyn development City Point.

The infinity pool faces the Manhattan skyline, offering unobstructed, 360-degree views from the rooftop. When the building opens, residents will be able to enjoy the heated pool from spring through the fall season.

Described as a perk of “resort living” on the building’s website, the area, which was designed by Matthews Nielsen Landscape Architects, includes spots for sunbathing, al fresco dining, outdoor movie screenings, and an observatory for stargazing.

Brooklyn Point contains 458 units, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms and starting at $850,000. As 6sqft reported last October, the highest apartment in Brooklyn can be found at the tower, listed for $3.9 million. The 68th-floor penthouse includes three bedrooms, three baths, and incredible views.

In addition to the incredible rooftop pool, amenities include a health and wellness facility, an indoor saltwater pool, 35-foot rock climbing wall, squash and basketball court, and a sauna.

At the Park Lounge, residents can enjoy a bar, fireplace, co-working space, chef’s demonstration kitchen, game lounge, children’s playroom and more. The building also sits above City Point, home to Trader Joe’s, Target, Alamo Drafthouse, and DeKalb Market Hall.
