The apartments are in a new building on the former site of Rheingold Brewery.


100 discounted apartments are available in a new building in Bushwick through the city's housing lottery.

The apartments are studios and one and two bedrooms in the building at 10 Montieth St., set aside for households making $33,189-$62,580 a year. Rents start at $913 a month, for a studio. Another 300 or so apartments in the building will rent at market rates.

Full income eligibility and rent details are here:


The building is part of a controversial new complex on the site of the defunct Rheingold Brewery. The building is supposed to have a live-in super, a mail room, laundry, a gym, climbing wall, a squash court, a sauna, bike storage, storage, a courtyard, a rec room, a kids playroom, an office center, art studios, a movie room, roof decks, a cafe, a spa, yoga and dance studios, and parking. Tenants have to pay additional fees to access the amenities.

The building is five blocks from the Flushing Avenue J, M, Z station, and eight blocks from the Morgan Avenue L station. There are lots of bars, restaurants, and stores along Flushing, Morgan, and Knickerbocker avenues, as well as Broadway.

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.
