If you're on the hunt for affordable rentals, you might be in luck: Applications just opened up yesterday for 30 affordable, new construction apartments spread across three South Williamsburg buildings: 37 Ten Eyck Street, 37 Maujer Street, and 356 Bedford Avenue. According to the listing on NYC Housing Connect, prices for qualified renters start as low as $532/month for a one-bedroom.
See below for the full list of apartment types, prices, and income requirements:
Buildings will include elevators, intercoms, bike storage, and the rather vaguely stated amenity of "indoor and outdoor areas," per the listing, and as Brownstoner reported in 2014, are being built by a nonprofit affordable housing developer. The buildings, which have been in the works since 2010, were all purchased from the city as vacant lots and are slated to be entirely affordable, though the Bedford Ave building will also have ground-floor retail as well as space for a medical clinic, per the initial building permits. As is standard with this type of affordable housing, priority for half of the apartments will be given to locals, in this case current residents of Brooklyn's Community Board 1, which encompasses parts of Greenpoint and Williamsburg.
If you think you're qualified and want to apply, brush up on our tips here, and either apply online via NYC Housing Connect, or request a paper application by mailing a self-addressed envelope to Yuco Management, Inc., 200 Park Avenue, 11th Floor, New York, NY 10166. Resist the urge to apply more than once—that could get you disqualified entirely—and get those applications in by the deadline, April 29th.
