Affordable Housing Linked to Brooklyn Heights Library Redo Rises in Clinton Hill

The walls are rising at 1043 Fulton Street in Clinton Hill, a photo from a Brownstoner tipster reveals, where Hudson Companies and Marvel Architects are building affordable housing as part of the redevelopment of the Cadman Plaza Library in Brooklyn Heights.

Construction appears to have reached about the fifth floor. The development has been in the works for some time. An application for a new-building permit was initially filed in 2015, and the permit was issued in 2017.


The building will have nine stories and 37 apartments when complete. A rendering from 2015 shows a restrained red-brick building with a setback at the top and a ground floor with high ceilings.

Rent for the units will be set at 60 to 125 percent of the Area Median Income, starting at $866 for a studio — considerably more affordable than private developments under the 421-a tax program.

A similar building, also related to the library development, is planned for 911-917 Atlantic Avenue a few blocks away. As of September, the luxury condo tower at 1 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, the site of the former library at 280 Cadman Plaza West, had risen past the one-third mark.
