TEN Arquitectos‘ 286 Ashland Place, a 384-unit, 32-story mixed-use development in Downtown Brooklyn, has topped out. The building’s 45,148 square feet (4,200 square meters) of community space will host 651 ARTS, The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and the Brooklyn Public Library.
20 percent of the units in the building are set aside for affordable housing. It will also host 21,928 square feet (2,000 square meters) of retail. Construction is expected to be complete this summer, according to New York YIMBY.
The project is located within the Brooklyn Cultural District, a Fort Greene development plan anchored by BAM. The triangular lot, across the street from BAM and a block from Atlantic Terminal, fronts high-traffic areas on all sides. On the Flatbush Avenue side, ground-floor retail and a stepped plaza break up what could have been a monotonous street wall.
The building’s façade is reminiscent of the firm’s Mercedes House, in Midtown West. There too, the exterior is broken up by a nonstandard arrangement of windows and built-in air treatment units. Though it obscures a previously unobstructed view of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank building, the articulations of the façade on 286 Ashland place draw the eye outward, towards the surrounding streetscape.
