PROSPECT HEIGHTS — Get your papers in order: there are only a few days left to apply for a unit in the all-affordable tower in Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park.
Sept. 15 is the deadline to apply at 535 Carlton Ave., the 18-story building now wrapping up construction in the 22-acre development in Prospect Heights.
Studios at the 300-unit tower start at $548 a month for tenants making between $20,126 and $25,400 a year and are priced up to $3,716 for a three-bedroom apartment for families making up to $173,415, according public lottery requirements.
To help residents apply for the affordable apartments, the building’s developer, Greenland Forest City Partners, and Mutual Housing Association of New York (MHANY) will host a final affordable housing information session at P.S. 9 on Underhill Avenue at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
All applicants to the building must apply through the city’s NYC Housing Connect system or by mail. Preference for half of the building’s 297 units will be given to residents of neighboring Community Boards 2, 3, 6 and 8, the lottery posting says, including the neighborhoods of Fort Greene, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Park Slope, Gowanus and Red Hook.
The building is one of six currently under construction at the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park site. This spring, the housing lottery began for the development’s first building to be completed, 461 Dean St., located next to the Barclays Center with a mix of affordable and market-rate rentals.
