The infinity pool that sits atop Brooklyn’s tallest residential building is not large and not deep enough for snorkeling. But it’s definitely high – 68 stories, to be exact.
The Brooklyn Point developers boast that the infinity pool is the tallest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere, 680 feet above the ground.
“The opportunity to put in an infinity pool that not only gives a view of the Manhattan skyline but all the way to 59th Street Bridge was an opportunity we couldn’t pass up,” said Brooklyn Point Sales Manager Cory Walter.
But amenities and views like what they are able to offer don’t come cheap: studios in the newly built tower start at $ 900,000, but there’s a 25-year tax break. There are over 400 units in the building and occupancy started in fall 2020.
Developers won’t say how many homes they have sold so far, but they are confident in what other agents describe and report as a growing real estate market in Brooklyn, despite the pandemic.
“When we were in the throes of COVID, we saw a demand for outdoor spaces, extensions of everyone’s house,” Walter said. “And we expect this to continue.”
The pool will open in the coming weeks for residents, just in time for the hot summer months. Let’s just hope no one is splashing too hard, otherwise it’s watch below.
