Excavation is well underway at the BAM South site on the corner of Flatbush and Lafayette Avenues, where Two Trees is building a 31-story apartment tower. The wedge-shaped lot at 286 Ashland Place will eventually house a 364-foot tall building with 384 apartments, 83 enclosed parking spots, ground floor commercial space and about 45,000 square feet of cultural and community space.
Ismael Levya Architects and Ten Arquitectos are designing the project, which will have 77 affordable units. A Brooklyn Public Library branch will take the community space, and there will be a large public courtyard along Lafayette and Flatbush Avenues. Signs on the construction fence predict the project will finish by August 2016. Click through to see the construction fence rendering by Ten Arquitectos.
