An affordable housing lottery has opened for four units in a recently constructed four-story building at 195 Sullivan Place in Crown Heights, five blocks from Prospect Park.

Of the affordable apartments, there are three studios and a single one-bedroom apartment. Monthly rents start at $904 a month and top out at $1,039.

The lottery is set at an area median income range of 60 percent. Eligible incomes range between $30,994 and $50,100 for households of one to two people.

There are a total of 19 units in the building. Laundry and additional storage are located in the cellar, with 225 square feet of recreation space on the rooftop. There will be eight parking spots for cars off site, and two on the ground floor. Ten bicycle parking spots will also be on the ground floor, along with a gym.

A two-story standalone house was formerly at the site. It was demolished in 2015.

Diego B Aguilera Architects of Rego Park, Queens, is the architect of record. They also designed a wraparound building with blank walls at 1595 Broadway in Bushwick.

Solomon Schwimmer of Twin Group Associates is listed as the owner on building permits. He purchased the property in 2016 for $2.87 million.

Leasing for market-rate units began in September 2018. Based on the listing photos, the units have large windows and hardwood floors. The open kitchens are modern in style, with all white and open-face cabinets. Some of the units appear to have a small terrace, but it’s unclear if these will be included in the affordable units.

Applications for the affordable housing lottery must be submitted by September 14. Apply through NYC Housing Connect. To learn more about how to apply for affordable housing, read Brownstoner’s guide.
