FORT GREENE — The Apple Store is reportedly opening a second Brooklyn location in Fort Greene.
The company signed a 10-year lease for a ground-floor space at the new 32-story mixed-use tower at 300 Ashland Place, at Lafayette Avenue, sources told The Real Deal and NY1.
The store will reportedly take up about 12,000 square feet at the property, The Real Deal reported.
Apple did not immediately return a request for comment. The property's owner, Two Trees Management, declined to comment but did provide renderings of the space.
The 379-unit tower, designed by Enrique Norten of Ten Arquitectos, takes up a 47,000-square-foot triangular lot bordered by Flatbush Avenue, Lafayette Avenue and Ashland Place.
Leasing began in July for the 303 market-rate apartments that start at $2,800 a month. Another 76 affordable housing units were rented through a lottery, and started at $889 per month. Move-ins were slated to begin this fall.
Aside from 43,000 square feet of retail space, the building will also feature 50,000 square feet of cultural space including BAM Cinemas, 651 ARTS dance studios, a new Brooklyn Public Library branch and a 10,000-square-foot public plaza.
Brooklyn’s first Apple Store, at 247 Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg, opened in July.
