An affordable housing lottery has opened for 31 newly constructed units in an eight-story building at 12 Eckford Street in Greenpoint.
Designed by a famous architect, the tower is one of a handful of architecturally significant new buildings in Brooklyn.
There are 36 studios, 67 one-bedroom units, 31 two-bedroom units and seven three-bedroom units available.
Although the mixed-use building stands in Fort Greene, it more closely resembles, in scale and style, neighboring towers in Downtown Brooklyn.
Designed by the firm Hill West Architects, the building's 26 stories will ascend in a slim, dramatic curve sloping upwards.
