Brooklyn’s newest affordable housing lottery is now open in Bushwick for two newly constructed units on an eclectic residential block containing a range of vinyl-sided tenements, recent developments and a Hindu temple.

The two units at 303 Stanhope Street, both two-bedrooms, will be renting for $1,030 a month to two- to four-person families making between $35,314 and $54,740 a year.

The five-story, new-construction property contains 10 units, 510 square feet of community space and 7,654 square feet of residential space, according to the building permit.

Amenities include laundry, bicycle storage, and rooftop recreation space. The building’s commercial space houses an ambulatory diagnostic treatment health care facility.

The developer is Original Me-Co Enterprises LTD and the architect of record is Panagis Georgopoulos of Flushing, according to city documents.

Located between Irving and Wyckoff avenues, the building is a quick walk from the Myrtle Avenue commercial strip and a block from the DeKalb Avenue L train stop.

The lot, previously home to a since-demolished two-story building, was an empty, fenced-off lot.


The lottery is accepting applications through August 31.

A percentage of units will be set aside for mobility- and vision- or hearing-disabled applicants. Preference will be given to residents of Community Board 4 as well as municipal employees.
