A housing lottery opened this week for 59 luxury apartments at a new development situated near the border of South Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn. Developed by Riverside Developers, the eight-floor residential building, dubbed the Rose Castle Project, is located at 33 Little Nassau Street, between Kent and Franklin Avenues. New Yorkers earning 70, 90, and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, which range from $1,382/month one-bedrooms to $2,520/month two-bedrooms.
The available apartments have high-end kitchen appliances, countertops, and finishes. They feature smart-controlled heating and cooling systems as well as air conditioning. Amenities include a shared laundry room, gymnasium, and bike storage lockers. Units in the building feature a mix of one and two bedrooms.
Rose Castle is located on a quiet, private corner in Williamsburg just steps from the neighborhood’s hub of shops and restaurants. In addition to the amenities mentioned, Rose Castle is pet-friendly and has electric car charging stations.
The property is located near the G train and B48, B62, and B57 buses.
As Curbed NY previously reported, the Rose Castle Project is the product of a 2016 plan to bring almost 300 apartments to t 376-378 Flushing Avenue and 43 Franklin Avenue. The project was downsized after conflict with the local community board, and Riverside Developers abandoned their plan for 43 Franklin Ave., redesigning their project for Flushing Avenue as well, and resulting in the current Rose Castle Project.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until February 17, 2022. Fifty percent of the units are set aside for residents of Brooklyn Community Board 3.
