The development in the Brooklyn Cultural District continues to transform the area, and another new building is readying for occupancy. Now nearly complete, The Ashland at 250 Ashland Place has announced the leasing office for its 586 rental units will open on July 19th. The Gotham Organization is the developer of the 53-story tower positioned at the junction of Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene. It is the first tower to rise in Brooklyn’s Cultural District.
The building will have a total of 586 residences, from studios to three-bedroom units. Monthly rent for market-rate units starts at $2,600 for studios, and $7,500 for thee-bedrooms. Earlier this year, Gotham launched a housing lottery for the building’s affordable units and received more than 80 thousand applications. The first tenants are set to move in August 1st.
Rendering of the tower's crown
FXFOWLE Architects designed the exterior of the tower, which is in context with the surrounding neighborhood. The materials (brick, limestone, and glass) reflect the houses of Fort Greene, the former Williamsburg Savings Bank, and the new skyscrapers of Downtown Brooklyn. “We wanted The Ashland to be a marriage of past and present,” said Gustavo Rodriguez, principal for FXFOWLE. “The building’s solidity and coloration is rooted in historic Fort Greene; its planar composition of glass and masonry is clearly contemporary, and the result is a statuesque presence on the Brooklyn skyline."
SPAN Architecture designed the interiors, all of which feature floor-to-ceiling windows, wood plank floors, and stainless steel appliances. Many apartments will be have panoramic views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines.
