Wedged between star attractions the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Williamsburgh Bank Building, tiny 321 Ashland Place is about to grow in stature. The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the Landmarks Preservation Commission earlier this week approved dapper architect Hugh Hardy's addition to old Salvation Army citadel, setting the stage for the BAM Cultural District building to get a six-story attachment to its original, soon-to-be-restored facade. The building will house performing arts spaces, classrooms and a green roof, and will be renamed the Richard B. Fisher Building. Construction on the new portion will begin in the summer of 2010 and wrap up?BAM!?in spring 2012.
