Brooklyn Point, a new 68-story residential tower located at 1 City Point, clocks in at 720 feet and will soon break the record for the tallest infinity pool in the Western Hemisphere. Designed by Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, the rooftop pool will feature a sun deck, dining area, outdoor movie screenings, and even a stargazing observatory.

The ultra-luxe digs are the first development in Brooklyn for Extell – the developers behind the most expensive penthouse ever sold in NYC, at a whopping $100 million (at One57).

The City Point location means that residents of the new record-breaking tower will also get the best of Downtown Brooklyn, including close proximity to the 2 and 3 trains, 600,000 square feet of retail shops, a booze-friendly movie theater, and perhaps the best amenity of all: a Trader Joe’s.

New York-based architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) designed the tower, which will include 458 luxury residential units, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. KPF is also responsible for One Vanderbilt, The World Bank Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and 10 & 30 Hudson Yards, the latter of which will be completed next year.

The tower’s interiors were custom-designed by Katherine Newman Design, and upon completion in 2020 will contain 40,000 square feet of lavish indoor and outdoor amenities. Prices start at $840,000, and the units will go on sale beginning in March.
