This may be your opportunity to live in one of northern Brooklyn’s most transformative new developments. Starting today, both low- and middle-income New Yorkers can apply for 102 newly-built affordable units at Five Blue Slip, one of Greenpoint Landing‘s three affordable buildings slated for completion by the end of next year. Available apartments range from studios to two-bedrooms priced between $368 and $1065, and households of one to four individuals earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income are eligible to apply.
Five Blue Slip is part of the 5,500-unit, mixed-use Greenpoint Landing development on Commercial Street, near Franklin Street. Over the next decade roughly 1,400 affordable units will be added to the project, in addition to a new school, 9,000-square-feet of retail space, and four acres of public park space that will include a waterfront esplanade designed by James Corner Field Operations.
Previous reports tell us that finishes inside the apartments will be the same for both the affordable and market-rate units, the latter set in two towers that will rise behind the low-slung portion. Building amenities include a laundry room, bicycle room, fitness room and landscaped community courtyard. Handel Architects is responsible for the the design of all three affordable structures, and move in date of 2017 is expected.
The lotto for these 102 units officially opened today, and you can apply using this form here (pdf) up until December 29, 2016. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
