The lottery is set at an area median income range of 130 percent. Eligible incomes range between $81,258 and $159,640 for households of one to five people. The first phase of the launch was set at an area median income range of 60 percent.

The building has a total of 363 units and, according to the lottery listing, amenities include an on-site residential manager, bike storage and recreation room. Department of Building filings show the building also includes underground parking for 135 cars, retail space on the ground floor, a children’s room and an outdoor recreation space on the ninth floor.

Aufgang Architects designed the building and it first received a temporary certificate of occupancy in October 2019; the temporary certificate was renewed this month. The architecture firm is known for adaptive reuse and affordable housing projects, including nearby 325 Lafayette Avenue, which opened its lottery in 2015.

RXR Realty is the developer. They took over from the previous developer, GFI Development, for $28.7 million in 2016, according to Crain’s.
