An affordable housing lottery has opened for 74 newly constructed units at 210 Livingston Street, known as Hoyt and Horn, starting at $947 a month.

The 28-story Downtown Brooklyn skyscraper will have 368 units total. It replaced the city’s Human Resources Administration, which was demolished in 2014.

All of the units in the lottery will be set at 60 percent of the area median income. There will be 22 studios renting for $947 a month, 34 one-bedrooms renting for $1,017 a month, and 18 two-bedrooms will rent for $1,230 a month.

Studios will rent to one-person households that earn between $34,355 and $40,080 a year. To be eligible for the one-bedrooms, households must be one or two people and earn between $36,823 and $45,840 a year. The two-bedrooms will rent to households between two and four people who earn between $44,160 and $57,240 a year.

Amenities in the elevator building include a 24-hour doorman, an on-site resident manager, and a laundry room. Other amenities include bike storage, a fitness center, storage room, resident lounge, game room, outdoor terraces and on-site parking, but these all have extra fees, the notice notes.

The building is being developed as a join venture between Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates. Both developers are Manhattan-based. The designer is Handel Architects. Handel has a few Brooklyn projects, including 33 Bond Street and Greenpoint Landing.

The lottery runs through October 31. You can apply for the lottery through NYC Housing Connect here. For more on how affordable housing works, check out our Brownstoner guide.
