An affordable housing lottery has opened for three apartments in a four-story building at 383 12th Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues in Park Slope.
All three of the affordable apartments are one-bedrooms, with rent set at $2,241 a month.
The lottery is set at an Area Median Income range of 130 percent. Eligible incomes range between $76,835 and $139,620 for households of one to three people.
There are a total of eight apartments in the building but not much else in terms of amenities. Photos of the apartments included with the lottery show modern units with hardwood floors, small balconies, kitchenettes and a washer/dryer.
Although the building is new and modern-traditional in style, with a brick facade and masonry lintels, unusually it has a traditional Italianate style cornice with what appear to be carved wood brackets.
A two-story building that was formerly on the site was demolished in 2003. Between then and now, the property has racked up a few violations, including for doing electrical work without a permit, all but two of which have been resolved. Next door is a construction site; the property at 379 12th Street was listed for sale as a development property and sold in October 2020, with demo permits filed the next month.
Paul Lombardi of Design Studio Associates is the applicant of record. The firm has worked on a number of projects in Brooklyn, including Clinton Hill’s Lefferts Place Mews.
Joseph Catalano is named as the owner on building permits. He has owned the property since 1997.
Applications for the affordable housing lottery must be submitted by June 8, 2021. Apply through NYC Housing Connect.
