Hudson Cos. Picks Architect for Latest Brooklyn Development
CetraRuddy will design the 250-unit community located in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, which will also include 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
Hudson Companies has tapped architecture and interior design firm CetraRuddy for a new mixed-use project called 350 Clarkson. The development will be at 350 Clarkson Ave. in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The property will include 250 market-rate rental apartments, along with 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The eight-story structure will rise on land formerly occupied by low-rise commercial buildings, and represents the second phase of an effort aimed at increasing the number of housing options in the neighborhood.
Common amenities at 350 Clarkson will include a rooftop terrace, attended lobby, children’s play room, gym, yoga room, resident lounge, game room, private screening room, and garden. The project is expected to achieve LEED, NYSERDA and Energy Star certifications; leasing will begin in early 2019.
“The design for the building references the neighborhood’s industrial past, with a façade featuring a rhythm of recessed masonry expressions and an accent of copper panels,” said CetraRuddy co-founding principal John Cetra. “At the base, a ground floor glass storefront provides visibility to the active retail spaces within.”
Hudson Cos. secured $63 million in construction financing for the development earlier this year. The project next door, also by the developer, is the 170-unit rental at 310 Clarkson St. The company also developed the 254-unit 626 Flatbush Ave. in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood, which opened last year.
