The City yesterday announced a developer for the last undeveloped property in the BAM Cultural District, and the City’s Housing Preservation and Development posted renderings of the planned building on its Facebook page. The somewhat playful looking boxy building has projections and set backs; windows of varying sizes create a geometric pattern on the facade. The developer for BAM North Site II is Jonathan Rose Companies; Dattner Architects, Bernheimer Architecture, and SCAPE Landscape Architects are handling the design.
The building, located on Lafayette between Ashland Place and Rockwell Place in Fort Greene, will house 109 apartments, as well as Chelsea nonprofit Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, Science Gallery International, and a Craft-branded restaurant, Curbed reported. Forty percent of the units will be “affordable” and 60 percent market rate.
Tonight at 6 pm, FXFOWLE Architects will present its building plans for BAM North Site I at 598 Fulton Street to Community Board Two. What do you think of the above design?
