Applications have opened up for 16 affordable rentals in 781 Metropolitan Avenue, a new development on the former site of a White Castle in East Williamsburg, per a listing posted on NYC Housing Connect.

The apartments are a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, and two-bedrooms geared toward renters making 60 percent of the Area Median income (aka AMI), which means between $31,612 and $57,240, depending on apartment and household size. See below for the full list of apartment sizes, prices, and income requirements (click to enlarge):

According to the listing, building amenities will include laundry, gym, a roof deck, and a tenant lounge. As always with this type of development, preference for half of the affordable units will go to current neighborhood residents, in this case Brooklyn's Community Board 1

As Brownstoner has reportedly recently, the building is still under construction, but nearing completion. If you're interested and think you qualify, you can create a profile and apply online via NYC Housing Connect, or request a paper application by mailing a self-addressed envelope to 781 Metropolitan Avenue JV, LLC c/o St. Nicks Alliance, 260 Powers Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211. (Don't apply more than once, or you could be disqualified.)
