Last week, 6sqft announced that the affordable housing lottery had launched for 33 apartments at 149 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg. If you’re in this income bracket and are looking to live in this trendy Brooklyn area, you can now up your chances, as 13 more brand-new affordable units are up for grabs at five sites around the neighborhood–568 Graham Avenue, 7 Stagg Street, 40 Scholes Street, 198 Montrose Avenue, and 44 Morgan Avenue–according to the NYC HDC. These addresses, which will offer/preserve 24 affordable units in total, are part of a project from the affordable housing developer St. Nicks Alliance. Currently available are one-, two-, and three-bedroom units for those earning between $30,446 and $60,120 annually, roughly 60 percent of the area median income.

568 Graham Avenue, 7 Stagg Street, 40 Scholes Street, and 198 Montrose Avenue are newly constructed, small, walk-up buildings that were built on vacant lots. The Stagg Street location is rendered above by local firm Joseph Vance Architects, who are responsible for all four new buildings. 44 Morgan Avenue is an existing six-unit tax delinquent property; it will be preserved, and these residents will remain. According to the St. Nicks Alliance, all buildings and apartments will be outfitted with “energy-saving appliances, low-flow toilets and sinks, high-efficiency boilers, specially-designed fiberglass windows that prevent heat loss in the winter and help trap cool air in the summer, and a controlled ventilation system for indoor air quality.” Fifty percent of the available units are reserved for local residents of Brooklyn Community Board 1.
