Applications are now being accepted for 20 mixed-income apartments at a new Brooklyn high rise. The 19-story tower located at 1 Flatbush Avenue sits between Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene, conveniently located near a dozen subway lines, major shopping thoroughfares, and entertainment venues like the Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. New Yorkers earning 40 and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, ranging from a $690/month studio to a $3,063/month two-bedroom.
Designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Slate Property Group, 1 Flatbush contains 183 total units, a double-height lobby, and three levels of retail at its base. The first round of affordable housing at the building kicked off two years ago, offering units for those earning 60 percent of the area median income.
All apartments boast oversized windows, stainless steel ad Bosch appliances, beautiful hardwood flooring, and an in-unit washer-dryer. Other perks are found within an impressive package of amenities, which includes a well-equipped fitness center, billiards room, co-working space and lounge, furnished terrace, and a landscaped roof deck.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 1 Flatbush Avenue until August 4, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Brooklyn Community Board 1. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
