New renderings are up for the future BAM South tower at 286 Ashland Place, via Grain Collective; the site’s developer is Two Trees, and the design architect is Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos, while Ismael Leyva is the design architect.

The new images give a better idea of the skyscraper’s impact on the Downtown Brooklyn skyline, and it will be significant, rivaling the nearby Williamsburg Savings Bank Tower. Luckily 286 Ashland Place will be quite attractive, complementing its future neighbors with TEN Arquitectos’ innovative and contemporary take on high-rise design.

In terms of scope, BAM South will stand 32 stories tall, and the building will have 384 residences, 20% of which will be designated as ‘affordable’. 286 Ashland Place will also have a 21,928 square foot retail component, 45,148 square feet of cultural space, and an extensive outdoor component, illustrated in the renderings from Grain.

While the building’s impact on the skyline will be relatively significant, the plans for the base of the tower are even more impressive, and promise to activate a slice of Downtown Brooklyn with elevated public space, providing an additional avenue for pedestrian traffic beyond the current plane. Grain’s first glimpse at the landscaping is also promising, with flowerbeds and grasses comparing to arrangements along The High Line.

Completion of 286 Ashland Place is expected in August of 2016, and excavation for the tower is now underway.
