An affordable housing lottery has opened up for 13 units in an eight-story building under construction at 1068 Fulton Street in Clinton Hill. A former Building of the Day on the site — originally row houses, then Shoobra Palace Ballroom, then Elks Lodge 32, then Elks Plaza — was demolished last year.

Of the 13 affordable apartments, there are six one-bedroom units and seven two-bedroom units, starting at $1,744 and topping out at $2,099 per month.

The lottery is set an area median income range of 130 percent. Eligible incomes range between $59,795 and $135,590 for households of one to four people.

Nataliya Donskoy of Brooklyn-based ND Architecture & Design is the architect on record. The firm is currently working on a number of projects in the borough, including the modern, boxy design for Rabsky’s building at 115 Stanwix Street, one of several developments on the sprawling former Rheingold Brewery site.

Based on the rendering, the building appears to be mostly brick, with a cream-colored bump-out with large windows spanning from the second through seventh floors.

The building will have 41 units total, with retail on the ground floor and bicycle storage. The eighth floor will have a private terrace, and there will be a public terrace on the roof, according to public records.

The owner is Yoel Werzberger, according to public records. He has frequently worked with Donskoy’s firm on Brooklyn projects, including church conversions at 321 Wythe Street and 81 Ten Eyck Street in Williamsburg.

1068 Fulton Usa LLC purchased the property for $1.6 million in 2014 and building permits were filed the same year.
