Housing lottery applications are open for 36 rent-stabilized apartments at a new development in Park Slope, Brooklyn. New Yorkers who earn $31,543 to $165,230 are eligible to apply, depending on the size of the household. Rents start at $834 for a studio.

The pet-friendly building at 375 Dean St. has a gym, children’s playroom, party room, bike storage lockers, and a terrace. It’s located near Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center Station, which serves 10 subway lines.

Designed by S. Wieder Architect, the 17-story building holds 143 apartments total. Developer 35 Holding LLC wrapped construction on the property at the corner of Dean Street and Fourth Avenue this year, New York YIMBY reported.

The apartments are set aside for New Yorkers earning from 40 to 130 percent of the area median income (AMI)—a metric that depends on the number of people you live with. Currently the AMI for New York City is $113,000 for a two-person household. The apartments available include studios as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments. 

There are 24 one-bedroom apartments available for households earning from $33,806 to $165,000, depending upon the size of the household. The rent for these apartments ranges from $888 to $3,140. 

The developers have set aside half of the rent-stabilized apartments for applicants who already live in the area. Another 5 percent of the apartments will be preferentially given to city employees. A small percentage of the apartments are also reserved for residents with mobility, vision, and hearing needs. 

Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than Jan. 29th.
