Applications are now open for six affordable units in a Greenpoint building about two blocks from the waterfront.
The units are at 197 Freeman Street, a new four-story development that has been in the works since 2015, and include one and two bedroom units as well as one studio.
The one studio available will rent for $2,100 a month, and to qualify an individual must earn between $72,000 and $95,030 per year.
Two one-bedroom units are available for $2,255 a month, with three types of qualifying household incomes to be considered. A two-person household, for example, needs a combined income of $77,315 to $108,550 to apply, while the range for a three person household goes up to $122,070.
Three two-bedroom units are also available under this housing lottery at $2,715 a month. The household sizes to be considered for these units range from two people to five people, with all incomes beginning at $93,086 and ranging up to $146,510.
The building’s amenities include a gym, roof deck, laundry, and parking, all for additional fees.
The applications are open to all, with a general preference for those who live in New York City and no special preference for Community Board 1 Brooklyn residents. A small percentage of the units, however, will go to mobility-disabled applications and those with vision or hearing disabilities.
To apply, visit Housing Connect online. Applications can also be sent by mail by following the instructions on the housing application flyer.
The deadline to submit applications is August 6, 2018.
