Just this week, leasing launched at the splashy new Downtown Brooklyn rental 1 Boerum Place, with units including a $4,385/month one-bedroom and a $6,646/month two-bedroom. But if you earn 130 percent of the median income and are one of the 42 lucky applicants chosen, you can live in this luxury building for a lot less. A middle-income affordable housing lottery opened today and the available apartments range from $2,000/month studios to $3,120/month two-bedrooms. In addition to beautiful homes, the centrally located building offers a high-end amenity package that includes a rooftop terrace (complete with a “stargazing lawn”), an indoor swimming pool, sauna, and automated parking.

Construction wrapped up just this year on the 21-story building, which comes from developer Avery Hall Investments and the architects at SLCE. Taking up a full city block, it’s located directly across from Borough Hall, within walking distance to almost every major subway line.

The full suite of amenities includes 24/7 doorman and concierge services, a two-story fitness center complete with Peloton bikes and a yoga room, swimming pool, sauna, pet spa with grooming station, entertainment lounge, children’s playroom, a parking garage with electric car charging stations (fees apply), and a storage room.

The top floor amenity space has multiple seating areas and a large kitchen.

The landscaped rooftop deck was designed by Brook Landscape and includes an outdoor kitchen, stargazing lawn, and the “chalet lounge” fireplace.

The residences were designed by Gachot Studios and feature 10-foot ceilings, oversized windows, wide-plank oak floors, solid oak millwork, Bianco Dolomiti marble, and Venetian plaster. In the kitchens, there are Bosch appliances that include a five-burner gas cooktop with a built-in vented hood, oven, microwave, and under-counter wine refrigerator.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 3, 2021. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
