Greenpointers looking for new housing may score big if they win the latest NYC housing lottery. The newest local units available are just steps from Transmitter Park, in a new building at 44 Kent St.
The five-story building has 42 unique apartments, with 13 units reserved for residents earning 130 percent of the area median income (AMI). Eligible income ranges from $69,360 to $167,570, for households of 1-5 people.
The luxury waterfront property offers a rooftop with uninterrupted views of Manhattan and the Williamsburg Bridge, a fitness center, bike storage, business center, and more amenities. Parking is available for an additional fee.
All units are fitted with luxury amenities: central air, dishwashers, hardwoods, designer windows, and more. Monthly rent will start at $2,023 for a studio and increase up to $2,877 for a two bedroom.
Eligible applicants should submit their applications NYC Housing Connect by September 20, 2021.
These prices will be the downfall of Greenpoint, just like extreme rent regulation help it go downhill in the late 2000s.
Either extreme is no good. In the latter, landlords could not make any money and in the former only well to do can live here. The “affordable” housing is really only open to the upper middle class.
