Today is your last chance to apply for 282 affordable housing units at 250 Ashland Place in Downtown Brooklyn. The 52-story skyscraper rises from the heart of Brooklyn’s cultural district and is near a multitude of subway lines, the Atlantic Terminal transit hub, and the Barclays Center.

Developed by the Gotham Organization, the skyscraper encompasses 580,000 square feet of space and soars 568 feet into the burgeoning Brooklyn skyline, making it the second tallest in the borough after the nearby rental tower AVA DoBro. Designed by New York-based FXFowle Architects, the building is sheathed in a contextual brick and glass exterior, relating both to the charming brownstones of Fort Greene and the dynamism transforming Downtown Brooklyn.

Those apartments are 56 studios, 113 one-bedrooms, 85 two-bedrooms, and 28 three-bedrooms available to households earning between $28,835 and $200,400 per year, depending on family size. Prices will begin at $801 per month for the studios, $861 for one-bedrooms, $1,042 for two-bedrooms and $1,196 for three bedrooms. The units will be rent stabilized and the monthly rent includes gas.
