Starting today, an affordable housing lottery is open for 13 units at Williamsburg‘s new rental the Brooklyn Grand. Located at 774 Grand Street, the Meshberg Group-designed building is eight stories tall with ground-floor retail and offers a total of 64 units, 20 percent of which are reserved for individuals earning 60 percent of the area median income. The units up for grabs range from $722/month studios to $900/month two-bedrooms, and tenants will have access to the building’s roof terrace and fitness center and, for an additional fee, parking and bike storage.
Units feature stainless steel appliances, Caesar stone counters, ceramic backsplashes, and walnut bathroom vanities. According to listings, the Brooklyn Grand was “constructed to honor the historic warehouse and cast-iron aesthetic of the area.”
