A potential tall one!

NYT: City Point Project in Brooklyn Gets Unlikely Partner in Extell

[...]
Extell bought the last development site at City Point, which is made up of apartment buildings atop a mall and offices on densely settled blocks near Fulton Street. And though the tower that Extell plans to build there will probably contain rental units and not condos, Extell’s president, Gary Barnett, said, it could still soar to 60 stories, making it the tallest structure in the borough.

this tower will exceed 692' in height. It should be the tallest in the borough behind 340 Flatbrush Ext.

YIMBY: Extell Submits Pre-Filings For 57-Story Mixed-Use Tower At 138 Willoughby Street, DoBro

Yesterday, SLCE Architects pre-filed for Extell’s planned tower, which will rise 57 stories above street level.

The tower will rise 692 feet in height, although it’s not clear if that figure includes any structural rooftop elements.

First Look at Extell's 57-Story Tower For Downtown Brooklyn



On Wednesday night, Extell revealed its 57-story, 692-foot City Point tower to Brooklyn Community Board 2 (h/t Brooklyn Paper). When the tower was first announced, it was poised to become the tallest in the borough. But that's all changed now that JDS has come along with plans for a development that's nearly twice its height. Extell's tower is still in the approvals process, so the renderings may not reflect its final design. A rep for Extell says the company is still deciding whether the building's 500 apartments will be rentals or condos, but they're leaning towards the latter.

The white tower will have its own built-in exterior cleaning device—a feature that Extell has come to include in more and more of its developments. Construction on the tower is poised to begin in 2017 and wrap up in 2019.

Hopefully, there will be two tall buildings in close proximity racing for completion. 9 DeKalb is developing very slowly, though. Was on vacation in Brooklyn last month and walked by both of these sites, but saw very little progress.
