Maybe there’s a problem with overdue books? Hudson Companies’ controversial plan to redevelop a Brooklyn Heights library into a 36-story condominium building has hit an obstacle.

The Brooklyn Borough Board postponed its vote on the project, effectively stalling the $52 million sale of city land. While the City Council had given its go-ahead in December despite some opposition, the project still needs the board’s approval before it can move forward, according to New York State’s not-for-profit law and the city charter.

The item was removed from the board’s agenda and a spokesperson told the Brooklyn Daily Eagle that board members needed additional time to review the proposal.

Led by CEO David Kramer, Hudson plans 134 condos at the planned 409-foot tower at 280 Cadman Plaza West, now known as 1 Clinton Street. The units will range from one- to four- bedrooms.

All in all, there will be 268,000 square feet of residential space, nearly 1,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and a new library spanning roughly 27,000 square feet on the first floor and in the cellar, according to the building plans.

The developer is also reportedly constructing 114 affordable rentals off-site at 1043 Fulton Street and 907 Atlantic Avenue in Clinton Hill. [Brooklyn Daily Eagle]Dusica Sue Malesevic
