The first affordable housing lottery at the former Rheingold Brewery in Bushwick has opened, and 183 units are available, starting at $947 a month. They are located at 54 Noll Street and 123 Melrose Street in the complex developed by All Year and designed by ODA that covers two blocks at the southern end of the sprawling site.
Of the available apartments, 56 are studios, 87 are one-bedrooms and 40 are two-bedrooms. One-bedrooms rent for $1,017 a month and two-bedrooms go for $1,230.
The lottery is set at an area median income of 60 percent. Eligible incomes range from $34,355 to $57,240 for households numbering between one and four people.
The mixed-income luxury complex includes a large number of amenities: an on-site super, mailroom, package room and card-operated laundry. An additional fee buys access to a gym, swimming pool, bike storage, recreation room, children’s playroom, game lounge, regular lounge, cafe, dog spa, a spa for humans, movie theater, library, roof terraces and on-site parking.
The modern-looking eight- and nine-story buildings will have a courtyard in the middle and a large amount of rooftop space, renderings show. The facade is marked by a large number of windows, some of which are bifurcated by unusual concrete bracing.
Just down the street, ODA’s design for Rabsky is rising at 10 Montieth Street, also part of the massive redevelopment of the former site of Bushwick’s Rheingold Brewery.
An award-winning complex of 100 percent affordable housing was completed on part of the former brewery site in the early 2000s. In 2013, the remaining undeveloped blocks were rezoned to allow housing. The new development will bring blocks of market-rate luxury housing as well as some affordable homes to the traditionally working class neighborhood.
