One Clinton, Brooklyn Heights’ Future Tallest Condo, Is On the Rise

As One Clinton (280 Cadman Plaza West) takes shape in Brooklyn Heights, developer Hudson Companies has filed an offering plan with the New York attorney general’s office. A projected $477 million sellout would put the 134 one- through four-bedroom condos at an average price of $3.6 million.

Renderings by Marvel Architects show a minimalist, gridded façade going up on a distinctively shaped building, thanks to a triangular footprint that is becoming more distinct as the building rises to its planned height of 409 feet tall. Few details are available about the one- through four-bedroom apartments, but they will have generous layouts and expansive skyline views. 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.
