Live in a new Art Deco-inspired rental in Crown Heights, from $1,080/month

May 18, 2018

A Karl Fischer-designed rental in Crown Heights launched a lottery this week for 40 affordable one- and two-bedroom apartments. Dubbed The Frederick, the building at 564 St. John’s Place boasts a masonry and cast stone facade lined with stunning bay windows. To break away from the cookie-cutter look of new developments, the Frederick has residences with “state-of-the-art, but full of uncommon detail,” according to the building website. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income can apply for the affordable units, consisting of $1,080/month one-bedrooms and $1,223/month two-bedrooms.

Every home features 9-foot ceilings and hardwood floors made of maple. The kitchens come equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite counters and marble mosaic backsplashes. Both the hourglass-shaped hardware and pendant lighting are made of brass.

The amenities at The Frederick are impressive, allowing residents to enjoy the building’s lounge and collaborative work space, both of which have custom marble fireplaces. Plus, there’s a screening room, fitness center, bike storage, a part-time attended lobby and a landscaped roof deck.

Not only does the building sit on a tree-lined block minutes from Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Museum and the Botanic Gardens, the Frederick is near all of the hot spots on Franklin, Washington and Vanderbilt Avenues. Transit options include the 2,3,4,5 and the shuttle at Franklin Ave.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 564 St. John’s Place until July 24, 2018. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf).  Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Brooklyn Community Board 8. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
