Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District 300 Ashland Place Brooklyn NY 11217
Occupying the south portion of a triangular site at the intersection of Flatbush, Ashland, and Lafayette Avenues in downtown Brooklyn, the slim footprint of the building leaves most of the site to a new 15,000 square foot public plaza. The building base is a series of exterior, terraced levels that create an active, urban and public experience along Flatbush. The plaza affords the community and cultural spaces with street-level entries and the necessary public access to ensure their vibrancy. The first few floors of the tower consist of 50,000 square feet for cultural tenants, such as the performing arts organization 651 Arts, MoCADA, Brooklyn Academy of Music cinemas, and a new branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. The tower will also house retail space and rental apartments, 20% of which are affordable housing.
