Brooklyn Public Library - Brooklyn Heights Branch |
Brooklyn Public Library has entered into an agreement with the Hudson group to occupy a 3-story retail space in the new development called One Clinton located at 280 Cadman Plaza. This new branch will replace the Brooklyn Heights branch, which was previously located on this development site. One Clinton will be a 36-story residential tower that will contain two other retail spaces on its ground floor. BPL intends to begin their fit-out at the start of 2019 in order to align with the base building’s completion date at the end of 2019. Levien's role in the project is to represent the Library’s interests in the negotiation of changes to the work, cost, and schedule with the developer. In addition, Levien will provide key insight on the design development process of the branch’s fit-out, guidance for the selection and contracting method for a construction manager, and expertise in the reporting and documentation requirements of pass-through City contracts.
