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.
Some of the biggest developers in Brooklyn are slated to speak at the Brooklyn Real Estate Roundtable next month. The lineup includes executives from The Hudson Companies and Forest City Ratner.
The architects and developers working on the new Brooklyn Heights Library branch at 280 Cadman Plaza West will discuss their progress tonight at a public meeting in the library’s auditorium. David Kramer of developer Hudson Companies will give an update on the project, which will include 132 market-rate units and a 21,000-square-foot library at its base. Hudson will also build 114 affordable units off site. Jonathan Marvel of Marvel Architects will discuss the library’s existing layout, and describe the design and programming process for the new branch. The process will be community driven, and anyone interested can keep track of the project through the library’s page. The meeting will take place tonight at 6:30 pm at 280 Cadman Plaza West.
