Lotto opens for Bushwick church conversion, 20 units available from $822/month

April 10, 2017

It’s been two years since Cayuga Capital‘s “horizontal addition” to the former St. Mark’s Lutheran School and Evangelical Church in Bushwick topped out, and now the 20 affordable apartments at the site are up for grabs through the city’s housing lottery. The new, seven-story structure, along with the preserved 1890 Victorian Gothic church, and four-story former school building in between, will offer 99 rentals in total and have been dubbed The Saint Marks. The below-market rate units range from an $822/month studio to $1,071/month two-bedrooms, available to individuals earning 60 percent of the area median income.

Marketing images of the apartments show big, bright windows, contemporary kitchens, and hardwood floors (as well as a very cliche sampling of Brooklyn bespoke furniture and decor). Building amenities include a roof deck, laundry, 12-car parking garage, and bike storage.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 616 Bushwick Avenue until June 9, 2017. Residents of Brooklyn Community Board 4 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.
