Renderings of Hudson Companies’ planned 36-story, 139-condo-unit mixed-use building at 280 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights, have been released by the Daily News. Designed by Marvel Architects, the building will feature a 21,500 square-foot library on the ground floor, as well as retail and community space. The project must first pass through ULURP approvals, which begin this week. The existing two-story library will be demolished, and the developer has promised to offer temporary space for the Brooklyn Heights branch during construction. Hudson has also committed to building 114 off-site affordable units on two Clinton Hill lots, at 911-917 Atlantic Avenue and 1041-1047 Fulton Street.
A Brooklyn judge ruled Friday that the developers of Pierhouse, the condo-hotel project at Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park, didn’t violate height restrictions created to protect the view of the eponymous bridge.
Hudson Companies has acquired the development site spanning 1041-1047 Fulton Street, in southern Clinton Hill, for $7.2 million. According to Brownstoner, the developer plans to build a 39-unit all-affordable building designed by Marvel Architects. The site’s previous owners filed permits last year for a six-story market-rate building, but new applications are impending. The property’s former two- and three-story buildings were demolished last November.
Amid a controversy over height, the mixed-use development Pierhouse at Brooklyn Bridge Park, spanning Furman Street in northern Brooklyn Heights, is making slow progress. 1 Hotel, the 10-story, 200-unit hotel at 60 Furman Street, is nearly completely clad with glass. The 10-story condominium building at 90 Furman Street has topped out and is preparing for its façade installation, according to Brownstoner. At 130 Furman Street, concrete is up to the fourth and final occupied floor. The development will have 108 condo units between the two residential buildings, and completion is expected by 2016.
