This very prominent condominium apartment tower at One Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights was developed by the Hudson Companies and designed by Marvel Architects. 

It occupies a triangular site where Clinton Street meets Cadman Plaza West. 

The 36-story building is known as One Clinton and has 133 apartments and 100 "affordable" units in two off-site locations at 909 Atlantic Avenue and 1043 Fulton Street in Clinton Hill. 

The site was formerly occupied by the Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library.  The building, which was due for completion in 2020, contains a new branch of the library with a 20-foot-high ceiling.  The Brooklyn Public Library has vowed to spend $40 million of the $52 million that Hudson paid for the site to upgrade about a half dozen other libraries, as well as build a new library in Dumbo. 

Studio DB is the interior designer for the development.

Bottom Line

The prow of this almost triangular site in Brooklyn Heights, just to the north of a green-roofed tower at One Pierrepont Plaza, points to Lower Manhattan and this attractive tower has very large apartments.
