It’s been 14 years since Enrique Norten‘s ship-like design was chosen to sail upon a triangular site in an ambitious arts district planned for the area around the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Initially proposed as an eight-story glass building to house the Brooklyn Library for the Visual and Performing Arts, the project was altered to a mixed-use high-rise when Two Trees Management was brought onboard during the economic downturn in 2008.

Now officially known as 300 Ashland Place, the slab-shaped tower is a silvery 32-story icon that architecture critic Carter Horsley praises as a “gleaming, but mysterious steed” in the emerging Downtown Brooklyn skyline. It will house a smattering of public uses in addition to 379 apartments above. Earlier this July, leasing began on the 300 market-rate apartments that go for roughly $2,850/month for studios, $3,600/month for one-bedrooms and $5,750/month for two-bedrooms. And now, a housing lottery has launched for the 76 affordable units that include $889/month studios, $949/month one-bedrooms, and $1,087/month two-bedrooms.

The pet-friendly building has an attended lobby, 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, a resident lounge, on-site parking, a bike room and a sun-deck designed by James Corner Field Operations. The podium of the tower will front a 20,000-square-foot public plaza. Inside the base will be a branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, BAM’s Hamm Archives Center, and 651 ARTS.
