52-Story Tower in Brooklyn's BAM Cultural District Tops Out

New, 4 comments

Slowly but surely, the skyline of Downtown Brooklyn is becoming even more tower-filled. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that 250 Ashland Place, the 568-foot-tall tower that will rise above the neighborhood, has topped out, and YIMBY notes that cladding is moving along at a brisk pace as well. The building is one of the anchors of what's been dubbed the BAM Cultural District, and will have more than 500 apartments (many of them affordable) when it's ready for residents. Construction is expected to be done by 2016, and at this rate, that may actually be feasible.
