During a public meeting last night, developer Hudson Companies revealed the locations of two affordable rental buildings that will be built along with market-rate units at the new Brooklyn Heights Library branch. Hudson will construct 114 units of affordable housing at 911-917 Atlantic Avenue (above) and 1041-1047 Fulton Street in Clinton Hill. The affordable units will be 100 percent privately financed, according to a press release from the Brooklyn Public Library.

On Fulton Street, it looks like Hudson will take over existing plans for a six-story, 28-unit building at 1045 Fulton. Karl Fischer first filed those plans under a different developer in 2013, and a funeral home and two neighboring buildings have already been demolished.

BPL also announced that the community will be involved the design process for the new library, which will include an online and paper survey, interactive exhibit and a series of workshops. Marvel Architects will lead the first workshop on March 23 at 6:30 pm at the Brooklyn Heights Library at 280 Cadman Plaza West. A second workshop will take place April 20.
