EDGEMERE — The city has opened its lottery for 100 affordable studio to three-bedroom apartments in a new environmentally-sustainable building. 

Beach Green Dunes, at 44-19 Rockaway Beach Blvd., is a "passive certified building," which means it has environmentally-efficient details — from solar panels to windows that block drafts.

The buildings all have dishwashers, and the building includes a green terrace, a gym, laundry room and central air. It's close to the A train, the Q22 and QM17 buses. 

Most of the available apartments are one-bedrooms for people making between 50 and 90 percent of the Area Median Income, officials said.
