Applications have opened for what the city says are affordable housing units within a new Greenpoint building.
Eight units are available to apply to at 215 Freeman St. or the Freeman Corner Apartments, the six-floor mixed-use building right off the Pulaski Bridge.
The available units are split between one and two bedroom sizes at 130 percent of the Area Median Income. A one-bedroom unit, for example, is available for $2,270 a month to a two-person household with a combined income of $77,829 to $108,550. One-bedroom units here are available for household sizes between one to three people.
The two-bedroom units are available at $2,733 a month, and cover household sizes between two to five people. The qualifying income ranges for the household sizes all start at $93,703, and go up to $146,510 for a five-person household.
The building, in the works since 2015, includes a fitness center and yoga room, roof deck, bike storage, and laundry room. Parking is also available for an additional fee.
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.
The deadline to submit applications is August 8. To apply, visit Housing Connect online. Applications can also be sent by mail by following the instructions on the housing application flyer.
The eight affordable units at 215 Freeman St. come shortly after six units went online at 197 Freeman St., another building in Greenpoint, starting at $2,100 a month.
