If you've been on Flatbush Avenue recently, you might have noticed the signage for the Rockwell Place Condo. The building, in an old piano factory, will have 37 apartments, most of them studios and one bedrooms, some of which will be in the six floors being added "seamlessly" to the building. While the BAM Cultural District may mostly exist on paper, it is very much alive online. Rockwell is offering "a real loft in a real neighborhood in the BAM Cultural District." The nearby Forte Condo offers "artfully designed homes in the BAM Cultural District." BAM enters the conversation as far away as Fourth Avenue in G-Slope, where the Novo Park Slope is "perched within steps" of BAM. As for Rockwell, well, take thyself to the proofreader. Among other things, the site says, "You can go for a stroll in For Green Park (sic), created by Frederic Law Olmstead (sic)." As for neighborhood spots, it notes that My Little India--which is a home furnishings store--is one of the neighborhood's "international restaurants." Rosewood Vindaloo, anyone? Really nice renderings on the site, though.
