Two years after the Brooklyn Heights Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library was demolished, amid fierce opposition from some neighborhood residents, sales have begun for condos in the 38-story building that is quickly rising on the site. 

The building, designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies, is located on the triangular-shaped lot between Clinton Street and Cadman Plaza West. It is now known as One Clinton.

Prospective buyers are getting the first look inside, and the interiors include white oak flooring, marble-covered bathrooms, custom cabinets, high ceilings and huge windows, Curbed reported

Prices begin a $1.088 million for a one-bedroom unit and rise to $5.26 million for a four-bedroom condo, Curbed said. Sales will be handled by Corcoran’s Cornell Marshall Team.

The Brooklyn Heights Association and Community Board 2 both supported the project.

In accordance with the agreement under which One Clinton has been constructed, the building will include a STEM lab operated by the Department of Education as well as a new 26,000-square-foot library branch to replace the one that was torn down. In the interim, BPL has operated a temporary branch within Our Lady of Lebanon Church on Remsen Street.
