I think he just means the name, there's a tower in London called City Point.

Wow getting tall in Brooklyn now! The downtown Brooklyn area is growing denser and denser, which is a very good thing! A 200m+ tower right next to Juniors, who could have imagined that 10 or 15 years ago!

Since they only call it Brooklyn's tallest, I can only assume it won't be taller than the Citigroup building in order to claim to be L.I.'s tallest?

It may be a moot point for some time:

City Point's Actual Plans and 'Totally Imaginary' Tower



It's difficult not to fixate on the image of a 65-story tower standing over DoBro's Albee Square, but the plans for Phase 3 of the City Point development that includes the tower still have renderings that are "really totally imaginary," according to Tom Montvel-Cohen, a representative of Albee Development LLC. The development consortium is just finishing up Phase 1 of their project—45,000 square feet of retail space that is about to get its Temporary Certificate of Occupancy—and concrete details about Phase 2 are now being released. The second stage of development consists of two towers—a 250-unit 19-story building, and a 400-unit 30-story building—connected by a four-story structure containing half a million square feet of retail space. Both buildings will be rentals, with the taller building leasing at market rate and the shorter building renting at a 50-30-20 mix of income levels, according to the Brooklyn Eagle. Any plans for that 65-story tower rumored for Phase 3 are still far in the future.

---
So I'm guessing the developers either want to proceed without approval for anything beyond Phase 2 or are just waiting for the condo market to return before they're ready to build Phase 3. The tallest tower is really a bit much for rentals in BK.

Unveiled> City Point Phase Two
Cook+Fox designs a pair of towers in Downtown Brooklyn.



With a four-story retail complex ready to open along Brooklyn’s Fulton Street Mall, City Point’s second phase, designed by Cook+Fox with Lee Weintraub Landscape Architecture, is ready to move forward. Phase two consists of two residential towers—standing 19 and 30 stories and holding a combined 650 units—sitting atop a 500,000-square-foot retail podium. “The whole project is envisioned conceptually as one project, a big mixed-use transit-oriented development,” said Cook+Fox partner Rick Cook. “This is a perfect spot for a tall building in Brooklyn.”

Cook said the towers’ skins are currently being designed, but each building will have its own identity. “We intend to play off a similar fenestration pattern and skin” of the first phase, Cook said, which could incorporate the same custom-glazed white terra-cotta tiles. Landscaped areas are subtly incorporated into the site and on the rooftops. “We’ve created a series of recesses on the street wall where we could incorporate green spaces,” Cook said. A glass market hall leads through the site to the planned Willoughby Park by Michael Van Valkenburgh. A future third phase calls for an even taller building that Cook said will anchor the corner with a strong sense of verticality.

Great development for Brooklyn! Are there even more towers in the pipeline?

Yeah. By late summer the two tallest buildings in Brooklyn will be U/C, seen below. Plus the Atlantic Yards area around the Barclays Center will see a handful of towers of varying heights over the next few years, but a lot of those are more long term plans, that are probably at least a year or two out. Plus the waterfront on the Brooklyn side is really booming price wise within new developments, so that area will be developed, but I doubt anything of real size goes right on the water, probably at most mid 300s. Sorry that a little off topic as that news was released several months ago.

Brooklyn's New Tallest Tower Will Break Ground in 2012

Monday, December 12, 2011, by Sara Polsky



"The Brooklyner's reign as Brooklyn's tallest residential building was nice while it lasted. But next year ground will break on two new buildings vying for the Borough's Tallest title. The Journal reviews the contenders: 388 Bridge Street, which just got a much-needed loan and will break ground early in 2012, and Avalon Willoughby West, which expects to begin construction later next year.

The 388 Bridge project, at 590 feet, will contain 234 rentals on the lower floors and 144 condos on the upper floors (a format that's all the rage these days). The Avalon project is expected to be—ruh-roh—596 feet tall, with 861 rental units. According to the renderings we've got on file, both towers were designed by SLCE, so it seems the firm's the real winner here."

^ Yeah those two and whatever gets built in the third phase of this should form a nice little ~600ft cluster, perhaps a bit higher than that for this site.

There is also The Hub, which should be in that height range as well. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1488338

City Point lands Century 21 as anchor tenant needed to launch construction



Century 21 has agreed to open a store at the Fulton Mall in Downtown Brooklyn, the Wall Street Journal reported, expediting the groundbreaking of the long-awaited City Point development. The discount retailer is the first new traditional department store to open in Downtown Brooklyn since the 1970s and will serve as the anchor tenant for City Point, a planned development of 675,000 square feet of retail and commercial space and 690 housing units at Dekalb and Flatbush avenues.

With the tenant in hand, Acadia Realty Trust and Washington Square Partners plan to break ground on the project this summer and have pushed forward the ground breaking date for the last phase of the complex, a 680-foot residential tower, to 2017.

“We would not have moved forward without an anchor. Century 21 was what we really needed to make this project a reality,” said Washington Square President Paul Travis.

[...]
And away we go! Hopefully the tallest component can begin sooner. Market forces will determine...

Good news about the anchor tenant. So the two smaller buildings one with 19 and one with 30 stories should begin this summer.

I'm sure the 680ft for phase 3 isn't completely etched in stone at this point but that would indeed make it the tallest building on Long Island. Glad to see it get a bump in starting date as well even if it is still a long ways off.

Dekalb Market gets boot, paving way for CityPoint construction



Quote:
Businesses in Downtown Brooklyn’s increasingly popular Dekalb Market were informed it’s time for them to start looking for a new location, Eater reported, meaning construction is coming closer to starting on the long-stalled CityPoint development. The market, comprised of shops and restaurants operating out of old shipping containers off Flatbush Avenue, will be forced to move out by October, at which point developers Acadia Realty Trust and Washington Square Partners are set to begin construction on a retail structure.

When the market first opened last year, the operators were under the impression they’d have the space for five years, according to Eater. Construction on CityPoint, which is set to include 675,000 square feet of retail and commercial space and 690 housing units, was pushed forward last month when Century 21 agreed to be the complex’s anchor tenant.

As previously reported, the project had been planned before the recession and was nearly abandoned before a $20 million federal stimulus allowed development to begin on a small, 50,000-square-foot portion of the complex. There was also controversy surrounding the project when Aaron Malinsky, whose PA Development was initially part of the development team, was indicted in the Carl Kruger bribery scandal and dumped from the project. The charges were eventually dropped.

While Dekalb Market said it has already begun search for its new space, its imminent removal from Flatbush and Dekalb avenues is another sign that CityPoint, which is slated to include Brooklyn’s tallest tower, is moving forward.

An Updated Look at City Point, Without the 65-Story Tower



Quote:
Brownstoner spotted some new City Point renderings floating around, and they are more representative of what we will actually see at the site. Why? They leave out the 65-story tower that was deemed "really totally imaginary." Phase one of City Point—the shorter structure prominent in most older renderings— is complete, and construction on phase two is moving steadily forward. Phase two's 19- and 30-story residential towers are clearly shown in the new rendering, as well as the additional 660,000-square-feet of street-level retail space. The Cook+Fox website notes that although the towers are connected, they are are being designed as separate structures...phase two is supposed to be complete by 2015.
What a drag.

But that's life in the NIMBY Empire...

The Brooklyn market isn't quite ready for a truly tall skyscraper. But it'll get there eventually.

The one shred of hope here is that the Phase II plans haven't been expanded into the portion of the site that the Phase III tower would have gone into. But really expensive condos in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn is apparently too much of a high-beta proposition for the developers to be willing to endure a contentious approval process. So I think the developers soft-pedaled that "imaginary tower" to avoid any trouble with the rest of the development, which is now firmly set. Who knows what may happen if the market eventually swings enough their way to make the plunge worthwhile?

I don't see any real indication that the phase 3 tower is canceled in all of that. This is just a render that highlights the finalized phase 2 towers which are supposed to start soon.

The last we heard phase 3 was still quite a ways off and pretty much nothing was was final about it.

City Point's twitter account, where this render came from, still has a render with a placeholder phase 3 tower as its profile pic. It's different then the older one posted in this thread.

I am sure that as phase 2 is well under way and nearing completion we will hear more about what (if any) plans they still have for phase 3.

I don't see what all the pessimism is about. The Phase Three part constantly included the disclaimer that it was "really totally imaginary" I see no reason to get anyone's hopes up.

Brooklyn desperately needs a 700 hundred footer plus to elevate the aesthetic dimension of its skyline. We are sad because Brooklyn needs a landmark downtown and it appears many of us got our hopes up no matter.
