Affordable lottery launches at a new Bushwick building, but doesn’t save renters a whole lot

October 31, 2018

Applications are now being accepted for eight middle-income apartments at a newly constructed building in Bushwick. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments at 18 Stanhope Street, which include four $2,175/month one-bedrooms and four $2,270/month two-bedrooms. The units do not offer that much of a discount from the market rate apartments at the building, with current listings starting at $2,500/month for a one-bedroom and $2,700/month for a two-bedroom.
