New Building Holding Lottery for 29 Affordable Apartments
As the construction of the mega-apartment building on Myrtle Avenue comes to completion, 29 of the 143 total apartments will be offered to would-be residents through a lottery.
The apartments are located at 50r Myrtle Avenue in Clinton Hill, an eight-floor mixed-use building. The affordable apartments range in size from studios apartments to two bedrooms, and are reserved for tenants with yearly incomes between $30,206 to $54,360. The monthly rents will vary from $735 for the studio to $888 for the two-bedroom.
The ground floor will be occupied by retail space while the upper floors will contain apartments whose square footage will average about 736 square feet. The building comes with quite a few perks, such as a fitness center, storage space for bicycles, a deck on the roof with dining and barbecue areas, plus laundry facilities.
Residents of Brooklyn Community Board 2 will be given half of the affordable units.
