A newly constructed mixed-use building located near the Williamsburg Bridge has launched a lottery for 39 middle-income apartments. Built on the site of a former parking lot and single-story church, the 19-story tower at 321 Wythe Avenue includes 130 rental units, two floors of amenities, and an adjacent healthcare facility. Notably, because developer Watermark Capital Group is leasing the property from Saints Peter and Paul Church, certain activities “not in line with Catholicism” will be prohibited, DNAinfo reported in 2015. This includes a ban on things related to abortion, birth control, euthanasia, pornography, and stem-cell research.
Despite these strange stipulations, the ND Architecture-designed tower does sit in a prime location, just steps from a host of bars, coffee shops, restaurants and the Williamsburg waterfront. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the available 17, $1,999/month one-bedrooms and the 22 $2,399/month two-bedrooms.

Residents at 321 Wythe have access to amenities like a fitness center and sauna, conference room, on-site laundry, community room and a theater room. Plus, there’s an outdoor recreational space and stunning views of the Williamsburg Bridge and Manhattan skyline. Because the property is close to the water, transit options are limited to the B32, B59 and B62 buses as well as the ferry off of Kent Avenue and South 10th Street.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 321 Wythe Avenue until July 17, 2018. 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.
