Now called Cooper Park Commons, the project will bring 557 affordable units, senior housing and a new homeless shelter to replace the one already on site.
Gowanus residents propose a park instead of long-delayed mixed-income towers on a polluted brownfield site next to the Gowanus canal.
Of the affordable apartments, there are 27 studios, 31 one-bedroom units, 14 two-bedroom units and a trio of three-bedroom units.
The buildings are part of Hudson Companies' controversial redevelopment of the Cadman Plaza Library in Brooklyn Heights.
Construction has reached about the fifth floor of a nine-story building with 37 affordable apartments on Fulton Street.
Each unit will have a washer/dryer and the building includes rooftop gardening plots and a dog run and washing station.
More than a year after breaking ground, the 36-story luxury condo on the former site of Brooklyn Public Library’s Brooklyn Heights branch has reached a third of its future height.
Construction is in the early stages, with workers digging and putting up foundation walls when Brownstoner stopped by Monday.
A development slated to bring hundreds of affordable rentals, condos and senior housing to the banks of the Gowanus Canal will not debut this year after all.
Hudson Companies' David Kramer explains why nobody's buying land in Brooklyn any more at the Brooklyn Real Estate Roundtable.
