New Affordable Housing up for Grabs in Greenpoint and Bed Stuy


Two affordable developments have begun accepting applications for their housing lotteries: 1133 Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint and Elliot J Hobbs Gardens at 482 Franklin Avenue in Bed Stuy. The Greenpoint building (pictured) offers 105 units with studios for $494, one-bedrooms from $532 to $1,997, and two-bedrooms ranging from $647 to $2,405. Income caps run the gamut from $23,520 for a studio to $146,825 for a family of four in a two-bedroom. All the affordable housing info is here, and you can apply through NYC Housing Connect.

We stopped by the large construction site at the corner of Manhattan Avenue and Clay Street last week. The seventh story is rising, and the brick facade is being installed. And now the seven-story, 210-unit development has a teaser site, which reveals that building will have one and two-bedrooms for rent this fall. Amenities will include a rooftop lounge, fitness center, business center with wifi, landscaped courtyard, garage and storage units, according to the affordable housing fact sheet.

Meanwhile, the affordable building on Franklin Avenue has similar rents and income restrictions. There are 92 units for rent. Studios range from $494 to $1,589, one-bedrooms from $533 to $1,997, and two-bedrooms from $648 to $2,405. You can peruse all the affordable rents and income caps here and apply online.
