An affordable housing lottery opened Wednesday for four apartments in a new 20-unit building at 44-46 Stanhope Street in Bushwick.

There is one studio unit renting for $856 a month. There are also three one-bedroom units available for $985 a month.

Households with one or two members and incomes between $29,349 and 43,500 are eligible for the lottery. Gas for cooking is included in the rent.

The building has laundry in the basement, a bicycle storage room, exercise room, on-site parking for 10 cars, and a rooftop recreation area.

Designed by DJLU Architects, the building appears to have a stucco exterior with chartreuse metal screens breaking up the facade. Setbacks on the top two stories create terraces for the upper-story units.

Located between Evergreen and Central avenues, it is a few blocks from the J train at Kosciuszko Street.

A percentage of the units will be set aside for mobility-restricted residents. Additionally, 50 percent of the units will give preference to applicants from Brooklyn Community Board 4.

The lottery closes to applicants on October 5.

The new five-story construction adds to the trend of new development in Bushwick, and takes the place of an empty lot that was used for off-street parking in recent years.
