In South Park Slope, 19 affordable apartments in a peculiar rental up for grabs from $813/month

The attention-grabbing building was designed by Nataliya Donskoy

It’s been a few years since any news surfaced about the zany mixed-use building designed by Nataliya Donskoy at 635 Fourth Avenue in Greenwood, Brooklyn. Back in 2014, renderings for the Lego-like building, developed by Bushburg Properties, first surfaced, inciting plenty of head-scratching from its perplexing design, but things have been mum since, until now.

The city’s affordable housing website, NYC Housing Connect, has just launched the affordable lottery [PDF!] for 19 units within the building, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. While the announcement refers to the area as Sunset Park, we make a strong case against that since the development is much higher North of Sunset Park and more in the boundaries of Greenwood Heights/South Park Slope.

Individuals and families earning 60 percent of the area median income can try their luck for one of the eight studios priced at $813/month (for those earning between $30,343 and $45,840), seven one-bedrooms renting for $840/month (for incomes between $31,338 and $45,840), and four two-bedrooms going for $1,016/month (for incomes between $37,406 and $57,240). Applicants have until October 2 to apply.

The building will offer a pretty nice package of amenities that will include a fitness center, a lounge, a children’s room, a pet spa, a bike room, and an outdoor space. The development is expected to rise 120 feet while offering 91 units, commercial space, and a community facility once complete.
