An affordable housing lottery has opened for six units in a eight-story building at 610 Myrtle Avenue in Bed Stuy.
The affordable apartments are all one-bedroom units with a monthly rent of $2,245 a month. That’s a rate that rivals market-rate units in the area.
The lottery is set at an area median income range of 130 percent for all six units. Eligible incomes range between $76,972 and $124,930 for households of one to three people.
There are a total of 20 units in the building. According to the lottery listing, the building includes a gym, bike room, balcony, rooftop area and laundry. The building was issued a final certificate of occupancy in February.
The site was formerly occupied by a three-story semi-detached brick building that was demolished in 2017.
The architect of record is Arc Architecture + Design Studio. The Queens-based firm has worked on a number of similar apartment projects in Brooklyn, including another Bed Stuy affordable housing development at 625 and 625A Halsey Street.
The owner of record is Tomer Erlich of 610 Myrtle LLC. The LLC purchased the property in 2017 for $3.9 million. Erlich is behind a few other developments in Brooklyn including 668 Halsey Street.
Applications for the affordable housing lottery must be submitted by April 24, 2020. Apply through NYC Housing Connect. To learn more about how to apply for affordable housing, read Brownstoner’s guide.
