GREENPOINT — Try your luck getting into a waterfront studio in a brand new building with a laundry room, a fitness room and a landscaped courtyard for as low as $386 a month for those who qualify.

Applications to live in a newly constructed 102-apartment building in the sprawling Greenpoint Landing complex are now open.

Twenty-four studio apartments are available for single people in the building, renting at four different monthly rates depending on your income: $368, $517, $670 and $822. Earners who make between $13,955 and $38,100 a year are eligible for those rates. 

One bedrooms will also go at four different monthly rates: $396, $558, $720 and $882. They're available for singles and couples earning anywhere between $14,949 a year and $43,500.

Lastly there are 51 two-bedroom apartments open to families with between two and four people. The apartments begin at $482 a month for families that earn between $17,932 and $27,180 annually. Households that earn up to $54,360 a year are eligible to apply for monthly rates of $676, $870 and $1,065.

People who already live in Community Board 1, which includes Williamsburg and Greenpoint north of Flushing Avenue, get preference on half of the apartments in the building. City workers, people with hearing vision impairments or physical disabilities get preference on another portion of apartments.

The Greenpoint Landing affordable building now up for lottery via the city's Housing Connect, is the latest in the sprawling complex to be completed. Eventually the 20-acre site will include 5,500 mostly market rate apartments in multiple buildings.

The first push of the project has three entirely subsidized buildings, which will be followed by massive 40-story market rate towers. Residents recently moved into the first affordable building this summer.
