The Pratt Area Community Council is now accepting applications for affordable apartments at the second building that will be completed at the Navy Green complex in Wallabout, 40 Vanderbilt. There are 38 studio apartments available that, according to a press release, will go to single adults with incomes ranging from $21,774 to $28,650. Monthly rents run between $492 and $664. More details about the application process are available on the development’s website. The building will also have another 59 units reserved for individuals who have been chronically homeless. On-site social services will be available to all residents and provided by the nonprofit Brooklyn Community Housing and Services. This round of applications comes about a month after the lottery began for units at another Navy Green building, 45 Clermont. A lottery for affordable units at a third building in the complex, 7 Clermont Avenue, should take place next summer.
