David Kramer’s the Hudson Cos. is taking the next step in redevelopment of the Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, filing permit applications for a pair of nine-story affordable residential buildings in Clinton Hill.

The developer is planning to bring affordable housing to two locations: a 78-unit, 54,000-square foot building at 907 Atlantic Avenue and a 39-unit, 28,000-square-foot structure at 1043 Fulton Street. At 907 Atlantic Avenue, Hudson combined three adjacent sites, including 915 and 917 Atlantic Avenue into a single lot, according to zoning records. City records don’t yet show a closed sale on the property.

The building will have nine units on its first through sixth floors, and the eight each on the seventh through ninth floors, along with a fitness room in the basement.

The two structures are part of Hudson’s redevelopment of the Brooklyn Heights Library at 280 Cadman Plaza, which is also slated to include a 36-story condo tower with the new Library at its base, along with an interim library the company is building on Remsen and Henry streets.

Hudson bought 1043 Fulton Street back in June for $7.2 million. The new building on the site will have five units each on its first through sixth floors, four units on the seventh floor, and three each on the eight and ninth.

Marvel Architects is designing both buildings.

A representative for Hudson could not be immediately reached for comment.
