A skyscraper under construction in Brooklyn is now the tallest building in the borough at 720 feet, and the luxury tower is offering some over-the-top amenities to go along with its considerable height.
Brooklyn Point, an unfinished, 68-story luxury tower in Downtown Brooklyn, will include more than 40,000 square feet of amenities, including what the developer, Extell Development, calls the highest residential infinity pool in the western hemisphere on the rooftop.The tower, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, will house 458 studio to three-bedroom condos, priced between $850,000 and more than $4 million, when it's finished in 2020. It will also offer an indoor pool, a pet spa, a wine library, and much more.
With a surplus of luxury residences available in New York City, residential buildings are offering increasingly outrageous amenities to attract tenants, from residence-only bars and restaurants to private rooftop pools. Jason Fudin, cofounder and CEO of WhyHotel, a pop-up hotel service that operates in brand new, unleased luxury apartment buildings, recently told Business Insider that this "amenities war" between luxury apartments is a fairly recent development.
"There's an amenities war going on," Fudin told Business Insider's Lina Batarags, "but that's a big change we've seen over the past 10 years. Buildings used to squeeze amenities into a space, and now those amenities are actually what you advertise."
Here's a look at the extravagant amenities that will be on offer in Brooklyn's tallest building.
