The affordable housing go-to’s at Dattner Architects are at it again, this time with a six-building complex in East New York known as Stanley Commons, which includes five four-story buildings and one seven-story building surrounded by a large courtyard. There will also be a 19,000-square-foot community facility operated by Good Shepherds Services, a social service and youth development organization, and Man Up Inc., a local agency focusing on neighborhood improvement.
The City Planning Commission recently approved a controversial rezoning of the neighborhood, part of de Blasio’s push to increase affordable housing here, so it makes sense that 191 units are now up for grabs through the city’s housing lottery for individuals earning 60 percent of the area media income. This ranges from a $788/month studio to $1,182/month three-bedrooms.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at Stanley Commons until September 27, 2016. Residents of Brooklyn Community Board 5 will be given preference for 50% 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.
