A housing lottery opens for 40 apartments in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood
Housing Lottery applications are open for 40 rent-stabilized apartments in a new development in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. New Yorkers earning between $80,572 to $198,250 are eligible to apply, depending on family size. Rents start at $2,350 for a studio.
The pet-friendly building located at 210 Clarkson Ave. It includes a rooftop dog park, a pet spa, a screening room and a co-working lounge, according to the building’s website. Located near Winthrop Street 2 and 5 train stations.
Designed by Hill West and developed by K2 Real Estate Partners, the eight-story building features 165 units as well as a gym, laundry room and game room. The property replaces a two-story building with a Dollar Tree store.
The apartments are designated for New Yorkers who earn 130 percent of the area median income (AMI) — a measure based on the number of people you live with. The current AMI for New York City is $113.00 for a household of two. Available apartments include one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.
There are 29 one-bedroom apartments available for households with incomes ranging from $80,572 to $165,230. The rent for these apartments is $2,350.
Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than January 3.
