Right after the city announced the massive development plans for the BAM Cultural District, the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) is now in motion for the 32-story Two Trees build bounded by Lafayette Avenue, Ashland Place, Hanson Place and Flatbush Avenue. Community Board Two announced that on Wednesday, Dec. 19, the board will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 6 pm at 5 Metrotech Center in Room LC 400. This kicks off a one-year process in which Two Trees will have to go through the Community Board, the Borough President and the City Planning Commission. The plan, as it stands, calls for 50,000 square feet of community space, a public plaza, 23,000 square feet of ground-floor retail, and 300 or 400 apartments, 20 percent of which will be affordable.
