Located at the confluence of Clinton Street and Cadman Plaza West and standing directly in front of One Pierrepont Plaza’s postmodern red and white facade, One Clinton Street, aka 280 Cadman Plaza West, is on the rise in Brooklyn Heights, on its way to a 409-foot-high pinnacle with 36 floors within. The tower is being designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies.
Brooklyn Heights Library
Development is underway for a new high-rise in Brooklyn Heights. It has been less than a year since the old Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) was demolished, at 280 Cadman Plaza West. Work has progressed swiftly since, and thanks to images from Tectonic, we can confirm the new skyscraper has reached its second floor, with foundation work now apparently complete.
Last month, the City Council greenlighted the controversial plan to sell and redevelop the Brooklyn Heights Library into condos and a new library. Now the project has moved one step closer to reality, because Hudson Companies has filed building applications for a 36-story tower at 1 Clinton Street.
