The Pratt Area Community Council is still accepting applications for 40 Vanderbilt, the affordable studio apartment building within the under-construction Navy Green complex. PACC held the first lottery here last year. According to a bulletin by Community Board Two, studio units are available for single adults with incomes ranging from $21,774 to $28,650, and monthly rents are between $492 and $664. The units come furnished and with on-site social services provided by the nonprofit Brooklyn Community Housing and Services. Apartments are available for immediate occupancy. Here are all the details about the building and how to apply. When all is said and done at the Navy Green project, there will be 458 units total (both affordable and market rate) as well as commercial space, a common green area, and community facility spaces. Update: this post has been updated due to previous inaccuracies about the rents and income ranges.
