As work continues on the Greenpoint Landing megaproject, there's a sign that its buildings may be getting ready for occupancy: Applications for 92 affordable rentals at 21 Commercial Street, one of three affordable buildings within the larger site, have just opened on HousingConnect (h/t BrickUnderground).
The units are divided thusly: there are 23 studios, which are renting for either $494 or $788, depending on income (and will only be available for single applicants); 23 one-bedrooms renting for $532 or $847 (again, it's income-dependent, and only open to one- or two-person households); and 46 two-bedrooms, going for either $647 or $1,025, for households of up to four people. The maximum income that's allowed for applicants is $51,780 for a four-person household for a two-bedroom; the minimum is $18,309 for a single person in a studio. You can see the full breakdown via HousingConnect. And as per usual, preferential treatment will be given to applications from Community Board 1, which covers the neighborhood.
This is only the first of three buildings that will bring a combined total of 1,400 affordable rentals to Greenpoint Landing; two others, 33 Eagle Street and 5 Blue Slip, are still in the earlier phases of construction. An expected move-in date for 21 Commercial isn't explicitly stated on the HC application, but the deadline to apply is February 3.
