Clinton Hill Affordable Housing From Brooklyn Heights Library Developer Revealed!


Developer David Kramer’s Hudson Companies has released renderings of the Clinton Hill affordable housing it plans at 1041-1047 Fulton Street and 911-917 Atlantic Avenue. As readers will recall, both buildings are part of a deal struck to redevelop the Brooklyn Heights Cadman Plaza branch library at 280 Cadman Plaza West, next door to 1 Pierrepont Plaza, where Hillary Clinton has her campaign headquarters.

The renderings, more details of the project, and additional renderings of the condo building were revealed on a new website about the project last week.

The Clinton Hill buildings will offer 114 affordable units as part of the $52,000,000 deal Hudson Companies has struck with the library to buy and redevelop its current site. Like the proposed library tower, they were designed by Marvel Architects.

Above is the Fulton Street building. Rents will begin at $850 for a studio (for tenants making 60 percent of the Area Median Income) and top out at $3,623 for a three-bedroom (for those making 165 percent of the Area Median Income), according to a rundown on the website.

The website also offers a pair of new renderings of the 36-story tower Hudson wants to build on the library’s current low-rise site, in addition to the image we ran earlier this week. The one below offers a view of the proposed new 21,500-square-foot library, which will be spread over three levels.

The library will include an auditorium, a below-grade public space, and a double-height area on the main floor. The entrance will be on Cadman Plaza West.


Below is a street-level view of the building, which will have a pair of ground-floor retail spaces. According to the website, they’ll hold a Brooklyn Roasting Company coffee shop and a pop-up retail store curated by Smorgasburg.


The building’s 139 units will be a mix of one- to four-bedrooms, and have “generous layouts, expansive views of the NYC skyline and include a comprehensive set of amenities as well as underground parking,” according to the website.
