Housing lottery applications are open for 40 rent-stabilized apartments at a new development in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn. New Yorkers who earn $80,572 to $198,250 are eligible to apply, depending on the size of the household. Rents start at $2,350 for a studio.

The pet-friendly building at 210 Clarkson Ave. has a rooftop dog park and pet spa, screening room, and a coworking lounge, according to the building’s website. It’s located near the Winthrop Street 2 and 5 train stations. 

Designed by Hill West and developed by K2 Real Estate Partners, the eight-story building holds 165 units plus a gym, laundry room, and game room. The property replaces a two-story building with a Dollar Tree store. 

The apartments are set aside for New Yorkers earning from 130 percent of the area median income (AMI)—a metric that depends on how many people you live with. Currently the AMI for New York City is $113,00 for a two-person household. The apartments available include one- and two-bedroom apartments.

There are 29 one-bedroom apartments available for households earning from $80,572 to $165,230. The rent for these apartments is $2,350. 

Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than Jan. 3rd.

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. For details on this particular lottery, click here. Don’t apply more than once, or you could be disqualified.

Winning a rent-stabilized apartment can be life changing: Rent increases are capped and lease renewals are automatic, providing long-term stability for NYC renters. Need more information on how the housing lottery works? Check out “6 steps for applying to NYC's affordable housing lottery.”
