The third City Point tower, currently under construction at 138 Willoughby, will be called Brooklyn Point, and its address will be 1 City Point. More to the point, Extell Development’s skyscraper will be taller than anticipated, with more stories, as Curbed was the first to note.

In fact, it could be the tallest in Brooklyn, for a time, depending on when Brooklyn’s only supertall, 9 Dekalb, is completed nearby.

It will be 68 stories and 745 feet tall, according to building permits — previously the plan called for 57 stories and a height of 692 feet.

A new teaser site with an animated graphic details a mind-boggling number of lavish amenities — all arranged in the shape of the building. These include a salt water pool, rock climbing wall, yoga studio, squash and basketball court, cycling studio, screening room, putting green, fire pit terrace, refrigerated storage room, men’s and women’s steam rooms, stroller valet, wine room, game lounge, forest adventure-themed children’s playroom, garden room, barbecue grills, rooftop dining, sun deck, doorman, concierge, dry cleaning valet and meadow walk.

While SCLE Architects remains the applicant of record, Kohn Pedersen Fox and Katherine Newman Design International will be handling design, according to the teaser site.

Sales are launching soon, though completion is not expected until the first quarter of 2021, according to a sign on the construction fence.

How much will all this luxury living cost you? Condos will range from $840,000 to “over $4 million,” according to the site.
