If you don’t mind waiting out the L train “slowdown,” this opportunity might be for you. The lottery is now open for eight newly constructed, middle-income units at 150 Meserole Street in Williamsburg, just two blocks from the Montrose Avenue station. The apartments in the brand-new building are available to households earning 130 percent of the area median income and range from $1,689/month for a studio to $2,189/month for two-bedrooms.

Located on the corner of Meserole Street and Graham Avenue, the 60-foot, six-story building was completed earlier this year on a lot that had been vacant since 2016. According to Yimby, there is retail on the ground floor, medical offices on the second floor, and 25 rental units spread over floors three through six, most of which have already been scooped up at market rate.

Amenities in the building include an elevator, a washer and dryer in every unit, a bike room, and a common roof deck. For an additional fee, residents can also get access to dedicated parking. The centrally-located building is close to the G, J, L, and M trains, a block away from Sternberg Park, and close to many of the area’s trendy restaurants.

The deadline for the lottery is August 2, 2019. 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.
