BAM Cultural District
In the development-heavy nexus of Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn, a new rental building, dubbed Caesura, is now offering 49 affordable apartments.
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.
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.
Two neighborhood groups have announced an initiative that will help the new development-heavy neighborhood maintain its cultural identity. Culture Forward calls for the creation of new artist studios, affordable housing workshops for artists, and more.
The 304 market-rate units at 250 Ashland Place will range in size from studios to three-bedrooms with prices beginning at $2,600 and reaching as high as $7,500 a month.
The structure is currently a couple of stories above ground, and when complete, this Jonathan Rose Companies-developed building will include 123 apartments and cultural spaces on the lower floors.
The 32-story rental tower named BAM South is right on track to welcome tenants this fall. Work on the Enrique Norten-designed building's facade is wrapping up.
