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. Together 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. The tower and the building base are unified by a continuous folding skin. The base of the building contains retail (at the southern tip); a movie theater complex, which will be an extension of the adjacent BAM facility; a branch library; gallery; and dance rehearsal spaces. The residential lobby is located off Ashland.
