EAST FLATBUSH — A city-run lottery for 110 affordable apartments in a new supportive housing complex near Kings County Hospital opened this week, its developers and the city announced.
The building, CAMBA Gardens II at 560 Winthrop St. near Kingston Avenue, includes a total of 293 units, a majority of which will be set aside for formerly homeless and disabled individuals and families with special needs, according to a lottery announcement posted Wednesday,
The complex, built and run by the local non-profit CAMBA in partnership with KCH, will provide on-site social services for all its residents, even those in the 110 units set aside for the public, the posting said.
Rental prices for the apartments up for grabs in the public lottery range from $822 for a studio to $1,228 for a three-bedroom. All tenants in the complex must meet income requirements for the subsidized units; annual earnings of applicants must fall between $29,692 and $63,060, depending on household size, the listing said.
Preference for half of the 110 units will be given to residents of Brooklyn Community Boards 9 and 17, which cover Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, southern Crown Heights, East Flatbush and parts of Brownsville. Employees of New York’s public hospital system will get preference for 10 percent of the units, the lottery guidelines said.
Amenities at CAMBA Gardens II include a 24-hour front desk security, on-site laundry, communal recreation rooms and outdoor space and bike parking.
Applications to the complex can be made online through the city’s Housing Connect system or by mail. The deadline to apply is Sept. 12.
