The apartments are in a new building at 977 Manhattan Ave.


Three discounted apartments are available in a new building in Greenpoint through the city housing lottery.

The apartments are one bedrooms at 977 Manhattan Ave., an eight-story, otherwise market-rate building with a gym, a bike room, laundry, and storage. The available units are set aside for one- and two-person households making $34,972-$50,100 a year. Rent is set at $1,020 a month.

The building that this new development replaced sold for $4.1 million in 2015. At the time, the developer planned to build condos, but the company now seems to have opted to take advantage of 421-a tax breaks for making it a mixed-income rental building. The new building is now on the market for $14.25 million.

It's three blocks to the Greenpoint Avenue G station, and three long blocks to the new India Street ferry pier, with service to East 34th Street and the Financial District.

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