Hudson Companies today revealed provisional designs for a new skyscraper in Brooklyn Heights that bears a striking resemblance to the Flatiron Building.

The proposed 36-story tower, at 280 Cadman Plaza West, would replace the outdated Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library and offer the borough its very own wedge-shaped alternative to the iconic Manhattan building.

The development, designed by Tribeca-based Marvel Architects, would feature 139 condo units, community and retail space and a new 21,500-square-foot library on the ground floor, according to the New York Daily News.

Hudson acquired the site for $52 million and promised to build a new library as part of its project as well as 114 affordable housing units in the neighborhood.

The developer recently sold its Hudson East rental building in the East Village to Abro Management for $60 million. [NYDN]Rey Mashayekhi
