We’ve been so wrapped up in Two Trees’ filing of permits on the Domino Sugar Refinery site that we nearly forgot that central Brooklyn is also facing a massive new project from the big name developer. It’s a residential and retail building called BAM South and Two Trees ground broke on the project back in May. Now, we’ve got a new look at the final product.
Via NY YIMBY: BAM South will boast 384 apartments (20% which fall under the category of “affordable”) on 32 stories as well as 21,928-square-feet of retail, 45,148-square-feet of cultural space and a large scale courtyard.
As you can see in the image from above, the development—located at 286 Ashland Place—will be slightly shorter than the gorgeous Skylight One Hanson and feature a wealth of greenspace for folks in Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene to enjoy. Culturally, the area will benefit from new spaces for BAM’s archives, a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, a dance studio, and a cinema.
If all goes according to plan, BAM South should be complete by August 2016.
