Brooklyn library seeks public input on proposals

 The Brooklyn Public Library is asking for public feedback regarding several proposals to redevelop the site of the Brooklyn Heights Branch Library.

Thus far, seven proposals, some of which include glass-covered facades, ground floor retail, rooftop gardens and affordable housing, have been submitted. All of the proposals include towers that are roughly the same height as 1 Pierrepont Plaza next door.

However, proposal B is taller, with roughly 36 stories and 31,192 square feet, while most of the proposals offer only 20,000 square feet – a size some residents find objectionable, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.

“We are pleased that the BPL is seeking public comments on the proposals and we urge Brooklyn Heights residents who comment to share their thoughts with us,” Alexandra Bowie, Brooklyn Heights Association’s president, told the Brooklyn Eagle on Friday.

The Brooklyn Public Library is accepting public comments on its website, which provides photos and details about the proposal, through January 17. [Brooklyn Eagle]Christopher Cameron
