Located at the confluence of Clinton Street and Cadman Plaza West and standing directly in front of One Pierrepont Plaza’s postmodern red and white facade, One Clinton Street, aka 280 Cadman Plaza West, is on the rise in Brooklyn Heights, on its way to a 409-foot-high pinnacle with 36 floors within. The tower is being designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies.
This March, YIMBY covered the approval of the Spofford Juvenile Detention Center by the NYC Council Committee on Land Use. Now, permits have been filed for a fourteen-story mixed-use building at 720 Tiffany Street in Hunts Point, The Bronx. The new development, named ‘The Peninsula,’ will be six blocks from the Longwood Avenue subway station, serviced by the 6 trains. Six blocks further is the Prospect Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The NYC Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is leading the transformation.
Development is underway for a new high-rise in Brooklyn Heights. It has been less than a year since the old Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) was demolished, at 280 Cadman Plaza West. Work has progressed swiftly since, and thanks to images from Tectonic, we can confirm the new skyscraper has reached its second floor, with foundation work now apparently complete.
The team behind the La Central Development has closed a deal for financing towards the construction of their massive mixed-use project in the Melrose Community of the South Bronx.

The latest building permits indicate the structure will encompass 227,307 square feet and rise 80 feet to its main roof.
