The city’s latest affordable housing lottery is for 41 apartments in a newly constructed Williamsburg building just two blocks east of McCarren Park. A project of Dunn Development, the Meekerman is the second development in the state completed under the LIHC Mixed-Income Pilot Program, and it provides housing for those earning less than 40, 50, 60, and 80 percent of the area median income. Rents in the energy efficient building–it employs high-performance systems and appliances, as well as solar panels–range from $788/month for studios to $1,403/month for two-bedrooms.
Amenities include a landscaped roof terrace, outdoor recreation area with playground, community room, laundry room, and indoor bicycle parking.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at the Meekerman as of today through December 8, 2016. Residents of Brooklyn Community Board 1 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
