Starting today, qualifying applicants can apply for two newly constructed apartments in Greenpoint‘s Belvedere LXVIII. Located at 210 Java Street, the low-rise building sits in the heart of the neighborhood, minutes away from the water taxi, G train, plenty of old school mom and pop shops, and the increasingly hip retail and restaurant offer of the area. Inside the six-story structure are a total of 10 units, two of which have been set aside as affordable rentals; the one-bedroom is going for $947/month, while the two-bedroom is priced at $1,072/month.

Although the development has been pegged as “luxury,” its offer is actually quite generic (though still nice). The new construction offers quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, central AC, and washer/dryer hook-up. The building itself is served by an elevator and hosts a shared roof deck.


Households of one to two individuals earning between $32,469 and $32,469 can apply for the one-bedroom apartment, while households of two to four earning between $36,755 and $54,360 can apply for the two-bedroom unit. As usual, preference will be give to residents of the local Community Board (CB1).

The lotto for these two units officially opened today, and you can apply using this form here (pdf) up until November 15, 2016. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
