A Dattner Architects-designed affordable housing development is offering up 38 rentals, with rents starting from $865/month. The affordable housing lottery on the 11-story building officially launched today.

The building features a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms, and are open to individuals and families earning anywhere between $31,543 to $62,580 depending on the apartment type and family size. The building’s nine studios will rent for $865/month, the 10 one-bedrooms will rent for $929/month, and the 19 two-bedrooms will rent for $1,121/month. In addition, the building also has 11 apartments for formerly homeless individuals.

Residents at the affordable rental, which is located at 105 South 5th Street, will also have access to amenities like a recreation room, an outdoor terrace, indoor bike parking, and laundry in the building.

The project was first announced at the end of 2014; The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development picked the North Brooklyn Development Corporation to transform a former Landmarks Preservation Commission salvage warehouse into an affordable housing development.

The building is located close to the entrance of the Williamsburg Bridge, and some apartments here will look on to the bridge, and have views of the city beyond. Those interested in applying to the lottery have until June 22 to apply.
