CROWN HEIGHTS — Applications are now open for dozens of apartments for low-income residents in a new affordable housing complex in Crown Heights that will also serve as a home for adults with psychiatric disabilities, its developer said.
Concern for Independent Living, a Long Island-based supportive housing provider, said “Concern Bergen,” its new 90-unit building at 1552 Bergen St. near Utica Avenue, will open by September, according to an announcement made through Brooklyn Community Board 8 this week.
The organization is looking for tenants in the building, which has been under construction since 2015, a block away from Concern’s Rochester Avenue Apartments, a 65-unit supportive housing facility for individuals receiving treatment for mental illness.
Fifty-five of the units at Concern Bergen are reserved for adults with psychiatric disabilities, according to Concern. Thirty-three of them will be for individuals or families with low incomes.
Of those 33 affordable units, 11 one-bedrooms — renting for $650 a month — will go to tenants making between $26,000 and $31,750 annually for one person and between $26,000 and $36,250 for two people, the announcement from CB8 said. Twenty-one of the units are two-bedrooms renting for $760 a month; those will go to households making between $30,400 and $45,300 per year, depending on size.
The complex will have an exercise room, computer lab, shared community space and on-site laundry, the group said.
Those interested in the building can apply by mail or online to be considered for the complex. Units will be available in August or September, Concern said.
