Waitlist opens for ‘affordable’ units at Pacific Park’s modular tower, from $2,025/month
A rental tower in Brooklyn’s long-plagued Pacific Park development is currently accepting applications for its affordable housing waitlist. The 363-unit building at 461 Dean Street opened in 2016, with its affordable housing lottery launching that same year. Three years later, the building’s lottery waitlist has opened, inviting New Yorkers earning 160 percent of the area median income to apply for the not-so-affordable $2,025/month studios and $2,541/month one-bedrooms.
Single households earning between $71,829 and $119,520 per year can apply for the $2,025 studio apartments. Households with two people earning between $89,692 and $136,640 can apply for the one-bedrooms.
At 461 Dean, residents can enjoy a 24-hour attended lobby, on-site manager, in-unit washer and dryer, a fitness center, private dining room, lounge, children’s playroom, game room, and art studio.
Pacific Park, formerly called Atlantic Yards, consists of 22 acres of mixed-use development, including the Barclays Center. The project, in the works for more than a decade, calls for 15 buildings with roughly 6,400 residential units, 2,250 of them affordable. So far, just four residential towers and Barclays have been completed.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 140 Essex Street until the waitlist is replenished. 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.
