Williamsburg became unaffordable a long time ago, but if you’re still looking to get in on the trendy Brooklyn action, this may be your chance. According to the NYC HDC, the affordable housing lottery for 149 Kent Avenue will launch on Wednesday, giving those who meet the income requirements a shot at 33 brand-new apartments ranging from $563/month studios to $926/month two-bedroom units. And they’re just two blocks away from East River State Park (aka the home to Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg).

L&M Development purchased the site back in 2012 for nearly $20 million, drawing up plans to replace a one-story carpet warehouse with this seven-story brick building designed by GF55 Partners. It will have 164 units, and its retail base will be known as the Shops at 149 Kent and will occupy 17,800 square feet of ground-floor retail space with basement storage.

    hey, I’m looking at the 2 bedroom apartment for me and my fiancé, she made 300$ then the requirement income, will it be an issue if we apply or does it mean we don’t qualify for the application cause were over by 300$

    • Marie Manual

      Ramey- u don’t qualify, its mine. Your $300 over the budget. Unless, u can find somewhere to hide, that extra income, ur doomed. This is for low income, and ur $300 over, so ur now one of the 1% percenter…….roflmaof………..smh
