Middle-income lotto opens at Bushwick’s glass factory-turned-trendy rental

August 22, 2018

Two months after leasing kicked off at Glassworks Bushwick, the affordable housing lottery is opening for 19 middle-income units, ranging from $2,098/month studios to $2,715/month two-bedrooms. If this doesn’t seem so “affordable,” keep in mind that these market-rate apartments are going for $2,500 and $3,100. Plus, the trendy new rental, a cool conversion of the former Dannenhoffer Opalescent Glassworks stained glass factory at 336 Himrod Street, offers a fitness center, lounge, laundry room, book-share library, and, best of all, a landscaped roof deck with a barbeque area.

The 63-unit project comes courtesy of real estate developer and designer ASH NYC, in partnership with the owner of the former factory, Martin Lomazow. The team rehabilitated the factory space and constructed two new structures on either side, joining them all on in the interior.

The apartments in the factory section retain historic details such as brick walls and wooden beams.

The newly constructed units have huge windows, and all apartments have light fixtures custom made by ASH, white oak floors, and stainless steel Whirlpool appliances.

And let’s not forget those views from the rooftop, which was designed by Brooklyn Grange.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at Glassworks Bushwick until September 14, 2018. 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.
