Construction at Extell’s 138 Willoughby, aka Brooklyn Point, is moving along quickly, with concrete now at the tenth floor. Once opened, the skyscraper will complete the City Point mega-development in Downtown Brooklyn. The mixed-use multi-building expansion has already produced two residential towers and a 600,000 square foot retail space with a food market, grocery store, event space, and movie theater.

The 720-foot tall structure will yield 686,800 square feet for residential use. 458 condominiums will be created. Sales have already started as of March, and it appears that the cheapest apartment, an $837,000 studio, has already been snagged.

Completion is expected by early 2021. With the site’s current pace, this seems guaranteed, with topping out likely occurring in 2019.

Recently proposed towers in the area include Gehry-inspired 11 Hoyt Street, 7 Boerum Place, the controversial 80 Flatbush, and 61 Dekalb Avenue. The most highly-anticipated development in the area is 9 Dekalb Avenue. Design by SHoP Architects, the building will rise 1,066 feet tall to become the borough’s tallest building and first supertall.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Private support on its designs, not serious when I see construction.

  2. I love the two people ALONE in the pool. HAHAHA. More like you and 50 other gross people in a public pool that you can probably “enjoy” for 15-days a year at best. I just don’t get the “amenity” that a roof top pool is. The weather in NYC is abysmal rendering a pool useless 9-months a year and for June, July and August what do you have…a Saturday and Sunday??? And, these new buildings are enormous, so there’s not even remotely a shred of privacy or close to it to enjoy a pool. You may as well go to the wave pool at Action Park. HAHAHA. What a joke.

    • You’re so right Ryan – my home-town NYC heart bleeds when I think of the sacrifices & indignities that these brave yuppie gentrifiers will be enduring, as they boldly go forth and ruin our beloved Brooklyn.
      50 people crammed into their perk of a sky-high pool – heavens, how can people live like this?
      Well the only solution, on this beautiful Spring day in your “abysmal” New York, is to move to LA and find a nice place with a private & secluded outdoor year-round pool. Happy California swimming! We’ll miss you, not.

  3. I agree. A rooftop pool is a maintenance and insurance nightmare. The only justification I can think of is that it serves as a anti-sway (damper) device, but then if that’s the real purpose it should be an enclosed tank.

  4. @ Ryan
    Pissed because you cannot afford an apartment?
    Don’t be mad. UPS is hiring.
