Share this Article

A second round of applications opened up this week for spots in the Greenpoint Landing development, this time in a new building at 33 Eagle Street with a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms renting for as little as $494/month. (Another building at 21 Commercial Street opened applications back in December.)

There will be 97 affordable apartments in total, and the buildling will feature an on-site super, laundry room, bike room, fitness center, and landscaped courtyard. Once finished, the Greenpoint Landing project will include 5,500 apartments spread across 10 buildings, and a new K through 8 school, as YIMBY has reported. There's been contention around the project since its outset over concerns that the new buildings will re-shape the neighborhood in the same overpriced manner as the towers on the Williamsburg waterfront, and that their location in a flood zone and near a superfund site could pose health and safety risks.

Apartment prices range from $494/month for studios to $2,216 for two-bedrooms for renters with annual household incomes between $18,275 and $112,190, depending on apartment and family size. The full list of apartment options and financial requirements can be found below, and on the NYC Housing Connect Listing:

Preference for half of the apartments will go to current residents of Brooklyn's Community Board One, and applications are due by May 16th. If you're interested and think you may qualify, you can apply online via NYC Housing Connect, or request a paper application by sending a self-addressed envelope to E3 Owner LLC/33 Eagle St Apts, Morningside Station, PO Box 1585, New York, NY 10026.
