A housing lottery will launch Friday for 75 middle-income apartments in a newly constructed Brooklyn building. Located at 350 Clarkson Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, the building, dubbed “The Lois,” contains 250 apartments with 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. Designed by Cetra Ruddy, the eight-story building boasts a masonry facade with copper panel details, a nod to the area’s industrial history. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, which range from $1,721/month studios to $2,975/month three-bedrooms.
Amenities at The Lois include a roof terrace with barbecues, a tenant lounge, a fitness center with a yoga studio, a children’s room with an outdoor area, a screening room, and a game room.
The building sits near the many food and drink establishments popping up in PLG, particularly on Rogers and Nostrand Avenues. Plus, the southwestern section of Prospect Park is less than a 20-minute walk away. Nearest transit options include the 2, 5 trains at Winthrop Street and the Q at Parkside Avenue.
Developer Hudson Companies picked up the property in 2017 as part of a two-phase project to develop the neighborhood residentially. The first phase included the construction of a 170-unit mixed-use building next door at 310 Clarkson Avenue, called The Clark. Hudson also developed a luxury rental a few blocks east on Flatbush Avenue called The Parkline.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until March 25, 2020. 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.
