In East New York, a new affordable housing lottery has just launched for 206 units at a large new development at 2858 Linden Boulevard. Ranging from $375/month studios to $2,143/month two-bedrooms, the apartments are available to those earning 30, 40, 50, 60, and 100 percent of the area median income. The building was designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, which is responsible for three buildings on the mixed-use site. They all surround a landscaped courtyard terrace, and this building, site one, also has a community room, children’s playroom, bike room, on-site card-operated laundry room, and parking.
In terms of the larger Linden Boulevard development, MAP Architects explain on their project page:
Building 1 will contain multi-family residential and retail programs; buildings 2 and 3 will contain affordable multi-family units, supportive housing and associated on-site social services.
In total, the development will provide 498 units of mixed-income affordable housing. It’s about a 25-minute walk to the A, C trains at Euclid Avenue.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until July 21, 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 5. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
