An affordable housing lottery has opened for eight apartments in an under-construction seven-story building at 840 Fulton Street in Clinton Hill. It was formerly a gas station at the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue, which was demolished in 2015.

Of the affordable apartments, there’s one studio, three one-bedroom units and four two-bedroom units. Monthly rents start at $867 and top out at $1,123.

The lottery is set at an area median income range of 60 percent. Eligible incomes range between $31,612 and $62,580 for households of one to four people.

In the building, there are 39 units total, according to building records. Parking for 25 bikes will be available underground, while parking for 24 cars and retail will be on the first floor, and a recreation area will be on the roof. There will also be a gym, according to the housing lottery notice.

Market-rate units have yet to begin leasing for the building.
