Applications are now being accepted for 125 affordable units at Linden Terrace, an energy-efficient residential development in East New York. Located at 583 Emerald Street, the 156-unit building represents the third phase of the new affordable development. New Yorkers earning 30, 50, and 70 percent of the area median income, or between $16,938 annually for a single person and $115,850 for a household of seven, are eligible to apply for the units, which range from $419/month studios to $1,963/month three bedrooms.

Developed by Radson Development and designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning (MAP), Linden Terrace is a three-building mixed-use project that will bring more than 500 affordable apartments to East New York.

Amenities include an outdoor landscaped terrace, a community lounge, bicycle storage, on-site laundry, and a children’s playroom. Residents also have easy access to public green space at the recently opened Shirley Chisholm State Park.

The development’s first building launched a housing lottery in May 2020, which offered 206 affordable units. The first building contains multi-family residential units and retail programs.

In September 2022, a housing lottery for 129 affordable units within the complex’s second building launched.

Both buildings two and three received funding through the Buildings of Excellence Competition administered by the state’s Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) for use of sustainable measures, including “solar thermal, hot water heat pumps, ground source pumps, and heat recovery” technologies, according to the project page.

Construction of Linden Terrace is expected to wrap up by next year.

Nearby public transit options include the L subway line and the B14 and B15 buses.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until July 24, 2023. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Brooklyn Community District 5. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
