Ranging from $1,045/month studios to $2,795/month three-bedrooms, 60 low- and middle-income units at Greenpoint’s new rental Otto have come online through the city’s affordable housing lottery. The block-long, 197-unit building boasts that it is “community-forward,” with amenities like a lounge, old-school game room, gym, and a large rooftop with a pool, hot tub, barbecues, and incredible Manhattan views. For comparison, market-rate apartments are renting from $2,279/month for studios to $4,704/month for three-bedrooms.
Located at 211 McGuinness Boulevard between Greenpoint Avenue and Calyer Street, the building is just two blocks to the G train at Greenpoint Avenue and a quick walk to the ferry at India Street. The building also provides a private shuttle to Court Square.
