If you are dreaming of living in luxury directly on McGuinness Boulevard surrounded by gas stations in the footprint of a former Pep Boys Auto Shop, then you’re in luck. The city’s affordable housing lottery presents you the opportunity to apply for one of the 60 low and middle-income units at The Otto Greenpoint, a 197 unit “luxury” development at 211 McGuinness Blvd that markets itself as “community-forward.” The lottery is open through March 6.
According to Otto’s website, amenities include “a full time front desk concierge, a community lounge, library and co-working space, a resident’s gaming lounge, a state-of-the-art penthouse fitness center and an expansive rooftop with pool, hot tub, BBQs, lawn areas, outdoor TV and 360-degree views of New York City.”
Seven studios ($1,045 – $2,201 per month), 43 one-bedroom apartments ($1,064 – $2,320 per month), and 10 two-bedroom apartments ($1,276 – $2,795 per month) are up for grabs in the lottery.
The building will provide a private shuttle that costs $2 per trip to the India Street ferry stop and Court Square in Long Island City. The building is also a quick walk to the G train when you want to escape the boulevard.
