WILLIAMSBURG — The first batch of a planned 700 affordable apartments at the Domino Sugar Factory site are going up for grabs in the city's affordable housing lottery — with studios starting as low as $596 per month. 

The first 104 affordable studios, one and two-bedroom apartments at 325 Kent Ave. will start accepting applications on Monday, Nov. 28, according to the city. 

Once it's completed, the sprawling complex will include about 2,000, mostly market-rate apartments, as well as office space, according to an agreement with the city and developer Two Trees.

The complex sits just north of the Williamsburg Bridge on the waterfront, in between two East River Ferry stops and a short walk to the Bedford Avenue L train station and the J/M/Z station at Marcy Avenue.  

Through the lottery, six studios will rent for $596 per month for singles earning between $21,772 and $25,400 a year, according to the city.

Another 34 studios are available for $754 per month, for single people who make between $27,189 and $38,100 per year.

One-bedrooms will rent for $640 and $810 per month for one- and two-person households with combined incomes of between $23,280 and $29,000 and $29,109 and $43,500 a year, respectively. 

Two-bedroom apartments will rent for $775 and $979 per month for two-, three- and four-person households earning between $27,978 and $54,360 a year. 

Applications are due on Jan. 30.

Parking, bike storage and a fitness center will be available at the complex for an extra fee.

Preference for half of the units will go to current residents of Brooklyn Community Board 1.

Applicants can go online or request a mail-in application by sending a self-addressed envelope to 325 Kent Apts, 243 5th Avenue, Box 425, New York NY 10016.
