DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Applications to live at Downtown Brooklyn's new affordable housing tower are due next week, and the building is hosting three info sessions to help hopefuls nab a spot.
Winn Residential, the managing agent for City Point Tower One, will hold open workshops on Sept. 16, Sept. 17 and Sept. 18 at the Brooklyn Hospital Center to give potential applicants details on the lottery process and the building.
City Point 1, located at 7 Dekalb Ave. on Fulton Mall, is a 250-unit building, of which 200 apartments are set aside as city-designated affordable apartments with set rents. The building amenities include rooftop terraces, an attended lobby and a laundry room on each floor.
For one-bedrooms, the rents range from $538 to $2,038 per month, while two-bedrooms range from $868 to $2,455 per month.
A range of income earners are eligible for spots, from those making $18,515 a year to households bringing in $142,395 a year. The majority of the affordable spots are reserved for the higher income bracket, with a quarter held for those making under 50 percent of the area median income.
The info sessions will take place in the Brooklyn Hospital Center at 121 Dekalb Ave. in Fort Greene:
Wednesday, Sept. 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the third floor auditorium
Thursday, Sept. 17 from 8 to 10 p.m. in Dining Room A on the far side of the cafeteria
Monday, Sept. 21 from noon to 2 p.m. in Dining Room A on the far side of the cafeteria.
Applications for city-designated affordable apartments at City Point 1 are due Sept. 24 and can be filed online on the city's Housing Connect website.
