City Requests Proposals for BAM Cultural District Tower

The city has formally asked developers to submit proposals for a residential tower of up to 20 stories at Ashland and Fulton in the BAM Cultural District. The development will include 150 apartments. The Danspace Project and retail space will occupy the first floor. Half the apartments will be affordable to low-, moderate-, and middle-income families, defined this way: 20 percent of the units must be affordable to households of four earning up to $56,700 or up to $39,700 for a single person. Another 30 percent have to be affordable to households of four earning up to $92,170 or up to $64,480 for a single person. The dance center will get 39,000 square feet. The overall BAM project is supposed to include The 200-seat Theater for a New Audience, a public plaza and underground parking. A Visual and Performing Arts Library is currently on hold. (The Brooklyn Public Library has had problems raising money for the facility, and its fundraising efforts may be connected to its censorship of several paintings and photos in an upcoming show of Atlantic Yards-related work that opens next week.)
