BAM South

BAM SouthAfter nearly a decade, the BAM Cultural District addition will soon start rising from the ground. The mixed use building will occupy the south portion of a triangular site at the intersection of Flatbush, Ashland, and Lafayette Avenues in downtown Brooklyn, New York City.
BAM SouthTogether with the grand plaza, located immediately to the north, the proposed building defines the gateway to BAM and the new cultural district. The tower is articulated as three volumes: a central circulation spine and two flanking volumes, where the apartments are located.
