The tech giant has leased a 12,000-square-foot space for ten years
Well, this won’t make Bronx officials happy. Brooklyn is getting its second Apple store within Fort Greene’s 32-story mixed-use tower at 300 Ashland Place, reports The Real Deal. The tech company has reportedly leased a 12,000-square-foot space on the ground floor of the building, developed by Two Trees and designed by Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos. The off-market deal included a 10-year lease for an undisclosed monthly rent.
When it opens, the Fort Greene outpost will become Apple’s 11th location in New York City, with every borough but the Bronx boasting a store. In July, Apple opened its first Brooklyn location at 247 Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, along with popular grocery chain Whole Foods, leaving no doubt that Bedford Avenue has officially reached peak gentrification.
300 Ashland Place, which began leasing over the summer, features 379 rental units, with 76 of those priced below market-rate for those who qualify. In addition to the forthcoming Apple store, the base will include a dance studio, a new Brooklyn Public Library branch, and a four-screen BAM theater.
