After countless delays, lawsuits and drastically altered plans, the first units of affordable housing in the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park complex next to Barclays Center are finally accepting applications.
They’re the first wave of the more than 2,000 affordable apartments that were initially promised by developer Bruce Ratner during the construction of Barclays Center. Currently, the plan is to build a total of 2,250 affordable apartments by 2025.
The lucky people who are chosen will be able to take advantage of amenities including a 24-hour attended lobby, washers and dryers in every unit, a fitness center, a private dining room, a terrace, a children’s play room, a game room and an art studio. They’ll also have a pretty short commute to Nets games.
Residents of Community Boards 2, 3, 6 and 8 (which are located nearby) will be given preference. There are a total of 75 studios, 70 one-bedrooms and 36 two-bedrooms up for grabs in the lottery. May the odds be ever in your favor.
