Adding to the high-rise boom of Downtown Brooklyn is The Guild, a 23-story luxury rental building at 310 Livingston Street. A lottery is now open for 48 middle-income apartments at the mixed-use tower, which was designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and boasts a dark brick facade and bronzed windows. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 80 and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, which start at $1,542/month for a one-bedroom unit and go up to $3,219/month for a two-bedroom.

The Guild, which also has an alternate address of 308 Livingston Street, is being developed by Lonicera Partners. The building holds 160 rentals, with 30 percent of them designated as affordable for middle-income households. To make way for the new development, several early 20th-century terra-cotta brick buildings were demolished in 2019, as Brownstoner reported at the time.

The rental includes one- and two-bedroom apartments, all of which have oversized windows, wide plank floors, and in-unit washer-dryers. The apartments available through the lottery are rent-stabilized, which secures a lower monthly rent for the duration of the lease.

The Guild’s amenity package is pretty impressive, particularly the 23rd-floor rooftop, which has an outdoor lawn, sunning area, and “sky lounge” with skyline views.

The building also has a gym and yoga studio, a live-work lounge in the lobby, private outdoor dining and grill stations, a recreation room, bike storage, and a daytime library that transforms into a speakeasy at night.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until April 1, 2022. Full details on how to apply can be found here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
