Designed specifically to reflect the neighborhoods it straddles, The Ashland presents a different façade depending on the approach – a refined glass tower faces Flatbush Ave Extension to Downtown Brooklyn’s busy urban shopping and office environment, while a carefully chosen brick color-matched to Fort Greene’s unique shade of brownstones faces Fulton Avenue, including the iconic BAM building and the Williamsburg Savings Bank, centerpieces of the neighborhood, which are equally reflective of materiality and color.

Well-planned resident amenities include two full floors of outdoor space, carefully designed to mesh utility and beauty, featuring a wrap-around amenities terrace on the 3rd floor with indoor-outdoor fluidity and connection through lounges, barbeque areas, a demo kitchen, workspaces, gym with fitness studio and outdoor fitness terrace, film screening area, outdoor bar, and serene landscaped pathways with hidden nooks and benches, as well as Sunrise and Sunset Terraces, a screening lounge, and a game room on the 53rd floor, offering unparalleled 360 degree views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Statue of Liberty, New Jersey and the water.
