One Clinton is a new condo at 280 Cadman Plaza West on the cusp of Downtown Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights. Construction workers are approximately 25 floors up the 36-floor project being developed by Hudson Companies and designed by Marvel Architects. The building will host 134 one- through four-bedroom condos at an average price of $3.6 million. The total building sellout, which includes four commercial units is projected to be $477 million, one of the largest sellouts ever in Brooklyn

Renderings show a minimalist, gridded façade going up on a distinctive flatiron-shaped building. There are approximately a dozen floors left to frame before topping out at its final height of 409 feet tall. Apartments will come in one- to five-bedroom layouts and feature nearly 10-foot ceilings and large picture window with views of Manhattan and the harbor. Hudson told the New York Times in September that one-bedrooms are expected to start at about $1.1 million and two-bedrooms at $2 million, with an average price per square foot of $2,000.

Building amenities will include a fitness center, screening room, underground parking, and storage. Brooklyn Roasting Company plans to take one of the retail spaces in the base of the building, and the other will be occupied by a slate of rotating food pop-ups curated by Smorgasburg.

Hudson Companies bought the Brooklyn Heights library for $52 million in 2015, only to demolish it to make way for One Clinton. Some residents were opposed to the demolition of their local library to accommodate yet another condo tower. However, a new, three-story library branch with a 20-foot ceiling and two spacious reading rooms will go up in the base of the building, along with two retail spaces and a 9,000-square-foot STEM lab operated by the Department of Education.

In addition to the new library and community facility, Hudson Companies will build 114 units of off-site affordable housing at 1043 Fulton Street and 909 Atlantic Avenue in Clinton Hill. Affordability will range from 60-125% of the area median income.
