Applications open on Thursday, February 1st for three apartments in a new building in Bushwick, one block from the J, M, and Z trains, available through the city housing lottery.
apartments at 22 Melrose St. are two and three bedrooms, with air conditioning, high ceilings, and kitchens with marble counters and dishwashers. The building has laundry.
The apartments are set aside for households making $93,463-$143,910, and the apartments start at $2,726. That's
over market rate for the neighborhood, owing to a quirk in the city and state affordable housing programs aimed at creating housing for upper-middle-class people, but the apartments will be rent-stabilized for decades, meaning the rents could stay lower as prices rise around them.
