A housing lottery opened this week for 22 middle-income units at a new residential development in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at 131 Concord Street, Amnia offers tenants brand-new residences, luxurious amenities, and a prime spot in the heart of one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods. New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income, or between $100,252 for a single person and $198,250 for a household of five, are eligible to apply for the apartments, priced at $2,924/month for studios, $3,126/month for one-bedrooms, and $3,733/month for two bedrooms.

Developed by Bruklyn Builders and designed by S. Wieder Architect as the architect of record and Input Creative Studio, the mixed-use building rises 13 stories and contains 73 homes. The building features a brick, wood, and metal facade with floor-to-ceiling windows. Apartments benefit from western and southern exposures, as well as hardwood floors and stylish finishes.

Market rate rentals at Amnia start at $4,100 for a one-bedroom, $5,550 for a two-bedroom, and $10,000 for a three-bedroom penthouse, according to CityRealty.

Amenities include private storage, bicycle parking, a game room, a fitness center, a lounge, a landscaped courtyard with a dog run, and a rooftop lounge with views of the Manhattan skyline.

Situated in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, at the nexus of Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo, residents can enjoy an endless mix of entertainment, dining, and shopping options, as well as open green space at Cadman Plaza Park and Whitman Park.

Construction on Amnia, initially called Amiri, topped out in June, according to Yimby. The development is located directly next to Woods Bagot’s 33-story Amberly Apartments tower.

Nearby public transit options include the J, M, Z, B, D, N, Q, and R subway lines, as well as the B67 bus.
