PLG’s 626 Flatbush Is Taking Applications for Affordable Apartments

The partially built 23-story tower at 626 Flatbush Avenue in Prospect Lefferts Gardens has just started taking applications for affordable rentals, according to developer Hudson Companies. Rents for the 51 subsidized units start at $565 for a studio, $607 for a one-bedroom, $736 for two bedrooms and $843 for three bedrooms.

And income requirements range from $19,371 for a single person and go as high as $50,100 for a family of six. Half of the affordable apartments will be reserved for current residents of Community Board 9. (The area covers southern Crown Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Wingate and part of North Flatbush.) Potential renters can fill out this application and send it in by May 25.

When construction finishes, the high-rise will house 254 rentals and 4,000 square feet of retail. It’s expected to wrap in early 2016.
