An affordable housing lottery has reopened for six units in a six-story building at 387 Bleecker Street in Bushwick. The building is called the Gloria Bleecker, and it first had a lottery in August 2018.

“Gloria Bleecker — Units Still Available,” says the latest notice on the city’s affordable housing website, Housing Connect. The recently constructed building has had a temporary certificate of occupancy for almost two years.

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 the two-bedroom apartments. Heat is not included in rent (the units are air conditioned and heated via mini-split units controlled in each apartment).

The lottery is set at an area median income range of 130 percent. Eligible incomes range between $68,160 and $159,640 for households of one to five people.

There are 19 units total in the building, with eight parking spaces for cars and 12 for bicycles. According to building permits, there’s an outdoor terrace on the roof and a recreation room on the first floor.

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.
