Demo for 246 Ashland Place


    The Department of Buildings approved a permit to demolish the building at 246 Ashland Place, right along Fulton Street. According to public records, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development owns this building, along with the parking lot along Lafayette Avenue. That leads us to believe this has something to do with the affordable housing planned for that area. In October, HPD met with Community Board Two in anticipation of putting out a request for proposal for a development in the BAM Cultural District. When you consider this space along with the nearby parking lot, that leaves a sizable footprint for a new development right next to the under-construction Theater for a New Audience, and across the street from 29 Flatbush Avenue.  GMAP
