Following the launch of affordable housing lotteries at 461 Dean Street and 535 Carlton Avenue at Prospect Heights’s Pacific Park megaproject, developers Greenland Forest City Partners are set to launch the lottery this Friday on the all-affordable, 23-story tower at 38 Sixth Avenue, right next to the Barclays Center, and across from 461 Dean.
The SHoP Architects-designed building features a total of 303 apartments that range in size from studios to three-bedrooms. In the lowest income band, rents will start from $532/month for a studio, and conversely, in the highest income brand, a three-bedroom unit will rent for $3,695/month.
Of the total number of apartments, 198 will offered to families making between 101 and 165 percent of the area median income, which means families that make up to $173,415/year.
The rest have been set aside for families making between 30 and 100 percent of the area median income, which means people making as little as $20,126/year.
Here’s a look at the income bands and the corresponding rents:
People living in Brooklyn Community Boards 2, 3, 6, and 8 will be given a preference on half of the apartments, and seven percent of the apartments will be set aside for people with disabilities.
Here’s a breakdown of the apartments:
These apartments will be fitted with white oak flooring, quartz countertops with ceramic backsplashes, and an integrated dishwasher among other features.
Now on to the amenities—and there are plenty of them. Residents here will have access to a fitness center, a yoga studio, a residents’ lounge with a catering station, a children’s play area, laundry facilities on every floor, a rooftop terrace, underground parking, and a pet grooming center. Aside from that, the building will also be home to Pacific Park’s healthcare center.
Pacific Park’s affordable housing lotteries have generated a tremendous response so far. 461 Dean Street received 84,000 applications for 181 apartments, and 535 Carlton Avenue received 95,000 applications for 298 apartments.
The lottery at 38 Sixth Avenue will launch on Friday, and interested applicants will need to fill out an application on Housing Connect. The application process will remain open for 60 days after that.
Construction is progressing swiftly on 38 Sixth Avenue, with the building having topped out last summer. In total, Pacific Park will bring 6,430 apartments to Prospect Heights spread out over 14 buildings. Of the total apartments, 2,250 will be affordable.
