Though we might be Team Jersey, we can’t pretend not to love our Brooklyn neighbors. The borough is bursting with culture, cuisine, and creativity. And because of our love for real estate, we recently toured Brooklyn Point, a luxury building with for-sale residences right across the river in downtown Brooklyn. Located at 1 City Point, Brooklyn Point brings extravagance to the city and swoon-worthy amenities on everyone’s wishlist. Keep reading to learn more about the downtown Brooklyn luxury residences + its endless amenities.
All About Brooklyn Point
Brooklyn Point is a luxury residential tower and is the first and only for-sale building above City Point — the largest food, shopping, and entertainment destination in Brooklyn.
“Acclaimed firm Katherine Newman Design (KND) composed both the residential and amenity spaces throughout Brooklyn Point,” said Jane Betancourt of Brooklyn Point. “Named a three-time ‘AD 100’ Interior Design Firm by Architectural Digest, KND creates highly customized and meticulously crafted environments. KND has applied the same detail-oriented approach for which it is known in its ultra-luxury single-family homes to each apartment residence at Brooklyn Point.
Residents can choose from one- to three-bedroom residences of 703 square feet to 1,499 square feet with 40,00 square feet of amenities within the property.
Endless Amenities at Brooklyn Point
Brooklyn Point features incredible amenities, like the highest residential infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere (the pool is on the 68th floor and as you can imagine has the most incredible views) and a rock climbing wall with a height of 35 feet.
At the building’s park lounge, residents can savor their early-morning coffee or late-night drink at the custom bar, gather with friends around the fireplace, or relish in the view of Willoughby Square Park from the outdoor terrace. There’s even a screening and performance room where tenants can host movie nights with cinematic views or enjoy football Sundays. And for those with kids, the two-story children’s playroom features forts, slides, toy cubbies, and reading nooks.
Additionally, residents have access to a 24-hour concierge/doorman, package delivery room, indoor saltwater pool, spa, dry-cleaning valet, private storage, pet spa, park lounge, + more.
Residents of Brooklyn Point can also skip expensive gym memberships and take advantage of the property’s fitness center, weight and cardio training rooms, yoga studio, cycling studio, basketball courts, + more. The property even has InteractiveSquash, a game-changing fusion of sports and technology where immersive projection graphics showcase videogame-style play to transform the classic sport.
All About the Neighborhood + Property Perks
Brooklyn Point’s rooftop provides 360 views of Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the East River. The space cultivates the ideal hangout spot for gathering with friends, working, or even just unwinding after a long day. From dining al fresco on the 9th-floor terrace or warming up around the fire pit (perfect for cozy fall nights), residents feel right at home at Brooklyn Point.
“Brooklyn Point is ideally located above City Point with over 600,000 square feet of retail, including Trader Joe’s, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Target, [and] Dekalb Market Hall with more than 40 curated epicurean vendors,” said Jane. “Brooklyn Point is directly adjacent to the one-acre Willoughby Square Park [and] convenient to New York’s central transit hubs: 2, 3, B, Q, R, A, C, G, F, 4, and 5 lines.”
The building’s cityscape views are also to die for. We love how the scenery is vibrant throughout the day, with the sky changing colors and city lights melting into the night.
The Extell Choice
When choosing your residence, you can select between distinctively designed finish packages: custom copper or nickel bathroom and kitchen fixtures, and a light or dark palette of finishes for custom kitchen cabinetry and white oak wood flooring.
Each kitchen comes with custom quartz countertops, each primary bedroom cultivates the feel of a tranquil retreat with walls of glass and a backdrop of cinematic views, and each primary bathroom features unique mosaic walls that incorporate imported stones in various sizes.
“The Extell commitment to quality and craftsmanship is evidenced by the radiant floor heating, custom integrated glass medicine cabinet, hardware, pendant light, and the illuminated makeup mirror detailed in a satin copper or brushed nickel finish,” the website states.
Brooklyn Point also features a 25-year tax abatement, meaning you won’t pay real estate taxes until 2046 as well as super low monthlies. For a limited time, the sponsor will also cover your closing costs (approximately 4% of the purchase price) for all newly signed contracts.
