An affordable housing lottery has opened up for four units in a four-story building under construction at 1164 and 1168 Greene Avenue in Bushwick.
Of the four affordable apartments, there are two one-bedroom units and a pair of two-bedroom units, starting at $985 and topping out at $1,114 per month.
The lottery is set an area median income range of 60 percent. Eligible incomes range from $33,772 to $62,580 for households of one to four people.
There was formerly a wood-frame house at 1168 Greene and an empty lot at 1164 Greene next door.
The developer, Joseph Roubeni of Astral Weeks, purchased the adjoining lots for a combined $1.8 million in 2013 and 2014. In an email to Brownstoner, he confirmed that Bricolage Designs is the architect of record.
Based on the rendering, the building will be standard for this area: modern with a gray-brick facade, large street-facing windows and balconies on the third and fourth floors.
The building will have a total of 10 units, according to public records. Amenities include recreation areas on the first floor, plus a laundry, bike room and storage room for an additional fee.
