Affordable rents in the complex are close to market rate. Studios rent for $2,01 a month.
The 99-unit complex includes an 1890s school and a new seven-story elevator building.
Steel is rising quickly on an empty lot next to the former St. Mark’s St. Mark’s Lutheran School and Evangelical Church at 626-628 Bushwick Avenue in Bushwick. Developer Cayuga Capital is developing the church, the old school building, and this corner lot into a total of 99 apartments, as previously reported. The new address for the project seems to be 616 Bushwick Avenue, according to permits on the corner.
