More than a dozen Ridgewood apartments are now up for grabs through a recently opened affordable housing lottery.
One studio apartment, five one-bedroom apartments and seven two-bedroom apartments are available in a newly constructed building at 62-41 Forest Ave. Rents start at $1,450 per month for the studio unit and go up to $1,830 for the one-bedroom units and $2,442 for the two-bedroom units.
The studio unit is open to households of one to two people who make between $49,715 and $111,020 combined a year. The one-bedroom units are open to households of one to three people who make between $62,743 and $124,930 combined a year. The two-bedroom units are available to households of two to five people who make between $83,726 and $149,890 combined a year.
A full breakdown of the income requirements to enter the housing lottery is below.
The building offers residents several amenities including a roof terrace, bike room, laundry room and fitness center, though additional fees apply for use of the fitness center.
Nearby public transportation includes the L and M subway lines and the Q67, Q58, Q54, Q39, QM24, B13 and B20 buses.
Tenants of the building will be responsible for the electricity bill in addition to monthly rent.
