The board of trustees for the Brooklyn Public Library announced today that developer David Kramer’s Hudson Companies and architecture firm Marvel Architects will head up redevelopment of the Brooklyn Heights branch.

The executive committee on the board recommended Hudson to be the developer on the project at 280 Cadman Plaza West. Hudson bid $60 million for the project. Under the plan, the 60,000-square-foot building would be demolished to make way for a 20,000-square-foot library at the base of a larger building with 115 affordable-housing units above it.

Library officials aim to generate revenue through the project and put the money toward $300 million in renovations of library branches throughout Brooklyn.

Yesterday, a report from think-tank the Center for an Urban Future found that New York City Public Library’s branches are in need of repairs totaling $1.1 billion, as previously reported. [Capital New York] and [Brooklyn Heights Blog]Mark Maurer
