Brooklyn architectural firms Marvel Architects and Hudson Companies were recently named the winning development/design team for the new Brooklyn Public Library and mixed use building on the East side of Cadman Plaza.

The design is still in flux, but the most recent renderings show a tall, skinny and triangular building resembling a modern take on one of the most iconic buildings in the City, the Flatiron Building.

NY Daily News reports:

The 20-story tower, which will have 140 condo units, community space, retail and a new 21,000-square-foot library on the ground floor, looks like it will be Brooklyn’s very own alternative to the Flatiron building, with its dramatic wedge-shaped structure.
