Applications are now being accepted for 43 middle-income apartments in the heart of Williamsburg. Located at 130 Hope Street, the seven-story luxury building contains 143 apartments, boutique retail space, and outdoor amenities like a rooftop and zen garden. New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income, or between $100,252 annually for a single person and $215,150 annually for a household of seven, can apply for the apartments, priced from $2,924/month studios to $4,296/month three bedrooms.
Developed by Solomon Schwimmer, the entire building contains 143 residences, 72 parking spaces, and 740 square feet of retail space on the ground level, according to permits issued by the city.
Designed by J. Frankl Associates and Charles Mallea Architect, the property offers residents luxury-style amenities including a fitness center, rooftop terrace, double-height coworking spaces, a courtyard, a shared laundry room, and a bar and lounge. Apartments include state-of-the-art appliances and high-end finishes.
The building’s parking garage includes assigned parking spaces and electric vehicle charging stations.
The building’s design was influenced by the “contemporary ideals and artistic expression” of Williamsburg’s residents, according to the architect’s website. Envisioned as a “sculptural addition to the neighborhood,” 130 Hope Street features a brick exterior with “oscillating facets” that add a new architectural landmark to the neighborhood. A unique skylight in the center of the building and the atrium help illuminate parts of the building.
The property’s many communal gathering spaces, including its central lobby, atrium, and various outdoor spaces, are meant to promote a connection with nature and provide a sense of community, according to the architect.
The nearest public transit options include the G, L, M, and J subway lines, as well as the B24, B48, Q54, and Q59 buses.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until May 16, 2023. 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.
