An affordable housing lottery has opened for 140 units at a six-story building at 23 India Street, not far from the Greenpoint ferry landing.

Of the 140 units, there are 35 studios, 35 one bedroom units and 70 two bedroom units, starting at $613 and topping out at $1,230.

The lottery is set at an area median income range between 40 and 60 percent. Eligible incomes will range between $22,903 and $57,240 for households numbering between one and four people.

The project’s developer is Palin Enterprises, according to building permits. They are also behind the 40-story residential tower at 21 India Street, just a few steps down the block.

Ismael Leyva Architects, the same firm working on 21 India Street, designed the building.

The site was formerly the home of Metro Shipping & Warehousing Inc., which sold the building in 2006.

Preference will be given to residents of Community Board 1, municipal employees and applicants with visual, hearing or mobility impairments. The building, which is smoke-free, includes a community room, interior courtyard and a laundry room on every floor.
