At 610 feet, Douglas Steiner’s 333 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn currently holds the title of tallest building in Brooklyn. Though it’ll be surpassed by forthcoming supertalls like JDS’ 9 DeKalb Avenue, the first 1,000+ foot tower in the borough, and the 700-foot 205 Montague Street, the 53-story slab apartment tower known as The Hub will certainly remain a much-sought-after address, especially considering its wealth of amenities and proximity to the BAM Cultural District. Of its 740 apartments, 150 are reserved for New Yorkers earning less than 60 percent of the area media income, and as of tomorrow the lottery is open for these units, which range from $833/month studios to $1,082/month two-bedrooms.


Designed by Dattner Architects, The Hub has a 42,000-square-foot retail base that extends across the streetfront, and the residential tower is rhythmically stacked to emphasize its verticality. Amenities, for which residents in the affordable units may have to pay an additional fee, include a landscaped outdoor terrace with sun deck, poll, fitness center with yoga studio, dog run, grilling terrace, children’s playroom, and bike storage for every unit.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 333 Schermerhorn Street starting tomorrow, October 14 until December 15, 2016. Residents of Brooklyn Community Board 2 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. 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.
