Last week, Fort Greene’s 53-story rental tower, The Ashland, announced that it would start leasing its apartments starting July 19. Another BAM Cultural District Tower, 300 Ashland, didn’t want to wait any longer however with leasing now underway on the 35-story building’s 379 apartments.
A Wall Street Journal profile on the development surrounding the Brooklyn Academy of Music, also revealed the pricing on the units and more details about its commercial and retail components.
Apartments at 300 Ashland will start at $2,800 for a studio, $3,300 for a one-bedroom, and $5,750 for a two-bedroom, based on listings that have now been made available on StreetEasy — check out the interiors of one of the one-bedroom units in the gallery below. Of the 379 apartments, 76 are affordable units.
The Two Trees Management-developed project also has a significant cultural component. About 50,000 square feet have been set aside for dance studios, an experimental library, BAM’s expansion of its cinemas, and an art museum. The tenants for the non-cinema sections are: Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, the Brooklyn Public Library, and the performing arts group 651 Arts.
When we last checked in with this Enrique Norten-designed building, construction was nearing completion. The developers anticipate the first tenants moving in before the end of the summer.
