An affordable housing lottery has opened for 75 units in an eight-story building at 310-350 Clarkson Avenue in East Flatbush.

Of the affordable apartments, there are 27 studios, 31 one-bedroom units, 14 two-bedroom units and a trio of three-bedroom units. Monthly rents start at $1,721 and top out at $2,975.

The lottery is set at an area median income range of 130 percent for all of the apartments. Eligible incomes range between $59,006 and $172,120 for households of one to seven people.

Building permits show there will be a total of 250 apartments in the building. Bike storage and additional storage spaces can be found in the cellar. Retail spaces will be on the ground floor, along with more bike storage, 125 parking spaces for cars, a screening room, a game room, a children’s playroom, an outdoor recreation area, a gym and a yoga room. Additional outdoor space is on the roof.

The building, between Nostrand and New York avenues, takes the place of mostly one- and two-story garages.

Developer Hudson Companies paid $10 million for the property, a combination of five different parcels, in 2014. They have a number of projects in Brooklyn, including Dumont Green, Gateway Elton in East New York, the Brooklyn Heights Library, the Parkline at 626 Flatbush in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and The Knick condominium in Bushwick.

CetraRuddy Architecture is the applicant of record. While the majority of their projects are in Manhattan, they designed a 20-story residential building at 22 Chapel Street in Downtown Brooklyn that is currently under construction and the Williamsburg Hotel at 96 Wythe Avenue.
