It’s been six months since leasing got underway at the Enrique Norten-designed BAM Cultural District tower at 300 Ashland Place, and now developer Two Trees Management is giving us a peek at some of the swanky amenities this 32-story, Fort Greene rental has to offer.
The newly released photos provide a glimpse at the building’s roof terrace which comes with a sun deck that offers dramatic views of Brooklyn and the East River. We’re also getting a peek at the building’s residents’ lounge which comes with a billiards area and a tv room, as well as the rental’s fitness center, all of which are located on the 29th floor of the building. The terrace was designed by James Corner Field Operations, the same architecture firm behind The High Line.
Other amenities (not pictured) at 300 Ashland include a bike room, a parking garage, and a 24-hour concierge service. This tower stands out among other new BAM Cultural District towers in that it has a big cultural component spread out over 50,000 square feet. This space will be occupied by the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, the performing arts group 651 Arts, and include space for the expansion of BAM Cinemas.
300 Ashland includes a total of 379 apartments, and 76 of those are affordable apartments. Several of the tower’s units have already been leased, and of those currently available, rents range from $2,479 for a studio and go up to $5,119 for a two-bedroom. Construction on the project is still ongoing with the public plaza here scheduled to open in June. The cultural spaces will open sometime in 2018.
