An affordable housing lottery has opened for six newly constructed units in a six-story building at 387 Bleecker Street in Bushwick. The building is called the Gloria Bleecker.

Of the affordable apartments, there are three one-bedroom units and three two-bedroom units. Rents start at $1,988 a month for the one-bedrooms and top out at $2,436 a month for two-bedroom apartments.

The lottery is set an area median income range of 130 percent. Eligible incomes range between $68,160 and $146,510 for households of one to five people.

There will be 19 units total in the building, with eight parking spaces for cars and 12 for bicycles. According to building permits, there will be an outdoor terrace on the roof and a recreation room on the first floor. The lottery listing says there will be video door access, a laundry room for tenants and some in-unit washer/dryers, although the last two come with additional fees.

Manhattan-based MKF Group purchased the formerly empty lot for $2.3 million in 2014. They are developing a number of projects in the same area of Bushwick, including a nine-story apartment building at 1127 Willoughby Avenue and a 12-story mixed-use building at 301 Himrod Street.

Darrin Krumpus is the architect of record. His firm, Brooklyn-based Boro Architects, designed the two aforementioned Bushwick projects for MFK, as well as the Carlton Mews Townhouses in Fort Greene.

The building, which appears to be nearly finished, is constructed of sandy brown brick. Some of the units have balconies. Leasing for market rate units in the building has not yet launched.
