Building for Common Good: JONATHAN ROSE COMPANIES LLC.

Jonathan Rose Companies announced the launch of Caesura, a rental property at 280 Ashland Place in the Brooklyn Cultural District.

Caesura, situated directly across from the Brooklyn Academy of Music, is named for a pause in the middle of a line of music or poetry.

Caesura features 123 market-rate, middle-income, and affordable apartments in a mix of studio and one- to two-bedroom homes, along with 34 furnished micro units.

The property introduces a library of "Common Goods"--aN assortment of items that residents might need occasionally but don't need or have the space to own. Such items are available for check-out at Caesura, and include folding chairs and tables for card games, kitchen appliances, and even guitars and amps for the musically inclined.

The property's green features include quiet heating and air conditioning systems that are quite energy efficient, a rooftop garden lounge with an ecosystem of indigenous plants that attracts pollinating insects and birds.

"We have crafted this modern building to make it a thoughtful place to live where the living space extends beyond the apartment into the Caesura community," said Jenny Wu, Development Manager of Jonathan Rose Companies.

"The design of the building encourages the interaction of neighbors, the sharing of goods and ideas, and the convergence of housing and life. We hope to offer our residents a life with enriched experiences and sanctuary."

Caesura sits at 280 Ashland Place at the intersection of Ashland Place and Lafayette Avenue, across the street from the Brooklyn Academy of Music and next to the Mark Morris Dance Group,

Amenities include a concierge service, fitness center, double-height conservatory, community lounge and game room, bicycle storage, and laundry room.

The 34 micro-unit apartments are efficiencies under 400 square feet delivered with flexible, convertible furniture from Resource Furniture, such as a sofa and shelving unit that coverts to a bed, and a desk that expands to a dining table.

Rental prices start at $2,590/month for furnished micro-unit apartments $2,360/month for unfurnished studios, and go up to $4,795/month for two-bedroom units. Private balconies are available with select floorplans.

Dattner Architects with Bernheimer Architects, collaborated to design the building's facade. The 12-story building was designed to exceed Enterprise Green Communities criteria and was designed to achieve LEEC for Homes Gold certification.

The Bozzuto Group, a residential property manager, will offer concierge services. Apartments will be available for move-in beginning February 2018.
