Last time we took note of the Forté Condo at Ashland and Fulton near the Brooklyn Academy of Music it was a one-screen website and a big hole in the ground. Now, the condo being marketed as "towering grandly above Fort Greene" is seven stories out of the ground and its website includes breathless descriptions, floor plans and apartment renderings. It will top out at 28 stories with 108 condos. The building, which has been called the "Flatiron Building of Brooklyn," will eventually have some competition nearby on Flatbush Avenue where "the Alien Spawn of the Flatiron" is going up. The Fort Greene Flatiron, which will tower over the Brooklyn Academy of Music, among other things, is being put up by the Clarett Group.
