Judge closes book on Brooklyn Heights library, condo lawsuit
A state Supreme Court judge dismissed an effort by community activists to halt the Brooklyn Heights library redevelopment project, which includes a 36-story condominium.
Hudson Companies head David Kramer said the decision means the developer can move forward with relocating the library to its interim location this month.
“We always anticipated there would be litigation given the number of public hearings and stakeholders, yet we were always confident that we could withstand any legal scrutiny,” he told The Real Deal. Hudson is set to close on the $52 million purchase of 280 Cadman Plaza West this fall, he said. It plans to replace the aging library and build 134 market-rate condos.
