Last spring, the first housing lottery opened at Pacific Park Brooklyn when 181 affordable units at SHoP’s 461 Dean Street (the world’s tallest modular tower) came online. It was followed a few months later by 298 openings at 535 Carlton Avenue, COOKFOX‘s entirely affordable building, and now the third set of apartments for low- to middle-income New Yorkers is open. SHoP Architects also designed an all-affordable building at 38 Sixth Avenue, adjacent to the Barclays Center, and as of today these 303 residences are up for grabs, ranging from $532/month studios to $3,695/month three-bedrooms. Households earning between 101 and 165 percent of the area media income (or up to $173,415 annually) are eligible for 198 of the units, while 105 units are set aside for those earning between 30 and 100 percent (as low as $20,126 a year).
The apartments all have white oak floors, quartz counters and ceramic backsplashes in the kitchen, and high-end appliances.
Amenities in the 23-story building include a fitness center with yoga/dance studio, residents’ lounge with a catering kitchen, bike storage, pet grooming station, roof terrace, underground parking, and laundry on every floor.
In a press release, Pacific Park developer Greenland Forest City Partners notes that demand will likely be high for the lottery. At 461 Dean, 84,000 applications were received for the 181 units, and at 535 Carlton Avenue there were 95,000 applications for 298 apartments.
The $4.9 billion Pacific Park Brooklyn complex will span 22 acres, and when completed, will bring to Prospect Heights 14 new residential buildings and 6,430 new housing units, 2,250 of which will be affordable.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 38 Sixth Avenue starting tomorrow until March 14, 2017. Residents of Brooklyn Community Boards 2, 3, 6, and 8 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.
