An affordable housing lottery has opened up for 38 units in an 11-story building under construction at 105 South 5th Street in Williamsburg, right across from the Williamsburg Bridge.
The site was once home to the LPC’s architectural salvage warehouse, which was demolished in 2011.
Of the 38 affordable apartments, there are nine studios, 10 one-bedroom units and 19 two-bedroom units, starting at $865 and topping out at $1,121 per month.
The lottery is set an area median income range of 60 percent. Eligible incomes range between $31,543 and $62,580.
Designed by Dattner Architects, the building will have 55 units in total, storage for 28 bicycles, along with a retail store and a medical office on the ground, according to permits.
It is currently owned by the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development. Permits were first filed in 2014.
Based on the renderings, the east side of the building has the top three floors set back; on the west side, the top four. The interior rendering of a studio shows a large balcony, although it’s unclear if this will be included in the affordable units.
Last November, there was an affordable housing lottery for two buildings at 94 North 3rd Street and 125 Metropolitan Avenue, a few blocks away.
Next door at 109 South 5th Street is a six-story building that currently houses a WeWork. It is two blocks from Domino Park, which will be open in June.
