An affordable housing lottery has opened for three newly constructed units in a four-story building right next to the elevated train tracks at 2741 Fulton Street in East New York.

Of the affordable apartments, there is a single one-bedroom and a pair of two-bedroom units available. Monthly rents start at $1,950 and top out at $2,250.

The lottery is set at an area median income range of 130 percent. Eligible incomes range between $66,858 and $159,640 for households of one to five people.

There will be a total of 10 apartments in the building, according to permits. Parking for two automobiles, along with retail space, will occupy the ground floor. The units take up the floors above, along with a mezzanine on the fourth floor. Each unit features air conditioning, according to the lottery listing.

The site was once home to a two-story house that was demolished in 2013. Later, it appears to have served as a small parking lot.

Diego B. Aguilera Architects, the firm behind the wraparound building with a blank middle that was recently constructed at 1595 Broadway in Bushwick, is the applicant of record on building permits. Those same permits list Aron Schwartz of Fulton Developers as the owner.
