BPL unveils seven proposals for redeveloped Brooklyn Heights Library



Quote:
Unruly crowd challenges library officials at Thursday presentation

By Mary Frost
Brooklyn Daily Eagle

It was rough sledding Thursday night for Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) officials as they presented seven proposals to re-develop the Brooklyn Heights Branch Library.

Even before Josh Nachowitz, BPL’s VP of Government and Community Relations and Richard Reyes-Gavilan, BPL’s Chief Librarian ran through a Powerpoint with project renderings and details, opponents peppered them with catcalls and angry comments.



“These plans are covering up the slumlord aspect of what the Library did to this building,” one audience member cried out. “Why won’t you reveal the developers’ names?” others shouted. Opponents say the city is selling off public assets like libraries for the benefit of private developers, and that “the fix is in.”

BPL issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the city-owned site at 280 Cadman Plaza West in June. After years of budget cuts, the sale of the Heights’ property is intended to generate capital funds that help address $300 million in deferred maintenance in all 60 deteriorating libraries across the borough, BPL says.

Nachowitz said the project’s goals include rebuilding a branch library of at least 20,000 square feet, larger than the 15,000 usable square feet at the branch portion of the current library, excluding the Business Library, which is moving to the Central Library at Grand Army Plaza. The response has been “very robust” Nachowitz said. “It is one of the most competitive RFPs issued by the EDC.”

Here are the proposals for 280 Cadman plaza: http://brooklynheightsblog.com/archives/64398

The seven finalists represent a range of square footage, height and design features. All include towers that are, on average, roughly the same height as 1 Pierrepont Plaza next door, though at least one is taller and narrower. While most of the proposals offer 20,000 square feet of library space, one offers 31,192 square feet. A number of the proposals include some retail on the ground floor, and several include rooftop gardens accessible by library patrons.

“We hope to sign a contract in the first quarter of 2014,” Nachowitz said. The financial terms vary but are “all competitive,” he said, adding that the library is not revealing terms yet because “that would harm our negotiating position. All provide additional capital funding for libraries throughout the borough.”

The developer would create a condo (with one ground-floor level and one below-ground level) and sell it back to the city for $1. “It will be city-owned real estate,” Nachowitz said. None of the proposals involve developers buying air rights from a third party, he said. “The zoning is as of right, as we’ve said from Day 1.” He later elaborated that one of the proposals “contemplates a relationship with Saint Ann’s,” which shares the zoning block, but “not with Forest City Ratner,” which owns 1 Pierrepont, part of the same zoning block

Those BPL Tower Proposals In Full:

Quote:
The Economic Development Corporation did not reveal the developers or architects with the renderings (though the Journal says Forest City Ratner is not one of them), but the plans range from completely residential to mixed-use, with heights varying from 285-feet to 585-feet. A new 20,000-square-foot library would be included in the base, no matter which plan is chosen. Two developers sweetened the pot with bigger libraries (30,000-square-feet), five included affordable housing, and another two made the library roof a public green space. Most have retail space, and the number of apartments range from 99 to 167. Renderings show a lot of glass and several feature libraries with big atriums. The winning proposal will be selected early next year.

We have a winner!

BREAKING: Hudson Companies / Marvel Architects Announced as Brooklyn Heights Library Developer:



Quote:
The Hudson Companies and Marvel Architects (designers of the Pierhouse and 1 Hotel at Brooklyn Bridge Park) have been identified as the development team of choice for a new residential tower on the library site that will include a new branch for BPL. The developer’s proposed bid of approximately $60 million would not only allow BPL to invest $10 million in outfitting a 21,000 square foot library but will allow for $40 million in capital funding for other needy branches in BPL’s system as well as an 8,000 square foot temporary library to be located at Our Lady of Lebanon Church (113 Remsen Street).

A final vote on the proposal is scheduled for BPL’s board meeting to be held at 5:30 tonight at the Library’s Grand Army Plaza location.

The project, following expected approval by the full BPL board, will then go through thorough public review, including ULURP (Universal Land Use Review Process)—the City’s process for reviewing the sale of public land, which the Brooklyn Heights Library branch sits on—as well as a number of key political decision-makers, including Council Member Steve Levin, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council.

Good news. As of this afternoon, the planning commission approved it.

May steel rise in this skyscraper revolution!

============================


Unanimous vote paves way for 36-story condo tower

Quote:
The City Planning Commission unanimously approved Hudson Companies’ planned redevelopment of the Brooklyn Public Library in Brooklyn Heights on Monday.

David Kramer’s Hudson plans to knock down the existing building at 280 Cadman Plaza, and replace it with a new library and a 36-story condominium tower. The Brooklyn-centric development firm is set to pay $52 million for the public land, and will also build a temporary library during construction and two off-site affordable housing buildings at 907 Atlantic Avenue and 1043 Fulton Street.

In a statement, a Brooklyn Public Library spokesperson welcomed the Planning Commission’s decision. “As the Commission recognized, this project is a win-win for Brooklyn,” the spokesperson wrote. “In addition to bringing a new state-of-the art library to Brooklyn Heights at no cost to BPL, it will also help to alleviate the system’s capital crisis by generating more than $40 million that will be invested in libraries throughout the borough.”

The development recently caught the ire of labor group Build Up NYC, which argues the developer should be required to hire union contractors under its deal with the city. “It’s like a public subsidy with no public responsibility, no obligation to the public,” said Gary LaBarbera, president of Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York.

The title should also be NEW YORK | 280 Cadman Plaza West | FT | 36 FLOORS.

This is not the earlier design which was altered. Increase in height, and new look.

36-Story, 139-Unit Mixed-Use Tower Planned At 280 Cadman Plaza West Passes ULURP, Brooklyn Heights

Quote:

6:00 am on December 17, 2015 By Reid Wilson


In early November, the City Planning Commission approved Hudson Companies’ planned 36-story, 139-unit mixed-use building at 280 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights, and now the City Council has approved the project. According to DNAinfo, Wednesday’s vote was practically the last step before the project gets green-lit. Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to sign the deal, which will conclude ULURP, the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure. The project overtakes the site of the Brooklyn Heights public library and 26,620 square feet on the ground floor will be dedicated to it. In addition, the Marvel Architects-designed tower will include 9,000 square feet of city-run academic labs and retail space. The property will be sold for $52 million.

Plans Filed For Controversial Brooklyn Heights Library Tower



Quote:
It looks as if the redevelopment of the Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library is going to move forward quickly, now that the project has gotten City Council approval. YIMBY reports that the developer behind the controversial project, Hudson Companies, has filed plans with the city for the 36-story tower, which will have residences and amenity spaces, along with a new library.

The plans filed confirm much of what we already knew about the controversial development—it'll rise 36 stories, it'll be designed by Marvel Architects, and it'll have a brand-new library at its base—while also revealing a few new things. For one, the building will have 276,662 square feet of residential space, along with approximately 17,000 square feet for the new library (which will include meeting space and reading rooms). Update: As a commenter astutely points out, this is smaller than we'd last reported—the City Council approved a library space that measured 26,620 square feet.

[]Condos will make up much of the 409-foot tower.[/b]
