Nineteen newly built apartments in Brooklyn are now available through the city's housing lottery. Located on Fourth Avenue just south of the Prospect Expressway, in an area variously referred to as part of South Slope, Greenwood, and even Sunset Park, the building is a 12-story, 91-apartment complex.

The below-market units include studios and one- and two-bedrooms. They are set aside for households making $30,300-$57,240, with studios starting at $813 for a single person.

The rest of the apartments are market-rate.

The property is one of the latest in a wave of new residential buildings that have sprung up along the busy thoroughfare since the rezonings of the early-mid 2000s. It is on the site of the former Brooklyn office of the Seafarers International Union, a union of ship workers that cashed out of the newly prime location for $10 million back in 2013.

The construction site for the new building was dogged by violations, so if you make it in, be on the lookout for possible defects.The apartments are six blocks from the R at 25th Street, and 10 blocks from the Fourth Street-Ninth Street F and G station.

If you're interested and think you might qualify for one of these buildings, you can create a profile and apply online via NYC Housing Connect. Don't apply more than once, or you could be disqualified.
