Brooklyn Bridge Park President Regina Myer unveiled the design and developer for the two towers planned on the park’s final development site at Pier 6.

Renderings of Hudson Companies’ planned 36-story, 139-condo-unit mixed-use building at 280 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights, have been released by the Daily News. Designed by Marvel Architects, the building will feature a 21,500 square-foot library on the ground floor, as well as retail and community space. The project must first pass through ULURP approvals, which begin this week. The existing two-story library will be demolished, and the developer has promised to offer temporary space for the Brooklyn Heights branch during construction. Hudson has also committed to building 114 off-site affordable units on two Clinton Hill lots, at 911-917 Atlantic Avenue and 1041-1047 Fulton Street.
