Prices start at $1.177 million for a 932-square-foot one-bedroom/one-bathroom on the tenth floor and go up to $5.288 million for a 2,308-square-foot four-bedroom/three-and-a-half-bathroom on the 28th story. Prices for larger five-bedroom and penthouse units have not been released yet, according to Curbed. A sales gallery for the residence is located nearby at 157 Remsen Street.

According to the One Clinton website, “Residents enter their homes through a welcoming foyer that opens into a series of larger, light-flooded rooms. Expansive living and dining areas offer panoramic views of the New York City skyline through oversized windows.”

Along with open layouts, the luxe units will feature high-end appliances, white oak cabinets, and marble islands in the kitchens and walk-in showers, soaking tubs, and radiant heating in the master baths.

Building amenities include a 24-hour attended lobby; resident manager; “Sky Lounge”; landscaped terrace with grilling stations; fitness center with yoga studio, sauna, and hot tub; indoor/outdoor children’s center; screening room; and underground parking.

The Brooklyn Heights Library was demolished in 2017 to make way for the residential tower. As part of its negotiations with the city, Hudson Companies, which purchased the city-owned property for $52 million in 2015, agreed to replace the former library with a new 26,620-square-foot branch in the development’s lower three levels.

During construction, the Brooklyn Heights Library has temporarily relocated to 109 Remsen Street. According to the Brooklyn Public Library, funds from the sale of the former Brooklyn Heights Library will go toward repairs at other libraries, including the Walt Whitman (Fort Greene), Pacific (Boerum Hill), Washington Irving (Bushwick), and Sunset Park locations.

One Clinton will also include a 9,000-square-foot science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education lab operated by the NYC Department of Education.

The developers also agreed to a separate library branch in DUMBO as well as 114 units of off-site affordable housing. Two buildings will rise at 1041-1047 Fulton Street and 911-917 Atlantic Avenue in Clinton Hill to accommodate the affordable apartments.

Construction has begun at the Fulton Street site, Brownstoner reported last month. The project will include nine stories and 37 apartments. The Atlantic Avenue site will have 77 units. The apartments will be available to households earning 60 to 125 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI).

According to Corcoran, residents can begin moving into One Clinton in early 2020.
