When it comes to explaining affordable housing opportunities at new developments in NYC, we have to give kudos to the team at Pacific Park Brooklyn. With a new affordable housing lottery opportunity just launched for 38 Sixth in Brooklyn, the developers have definitely put together one of the most accessible and user-friendly interfaces for affordable housing (See official website).


With 303 affordable units at the new residential development for applicants who earn between $20,126 and $173,415, Pacific Park Brooklyn has included a handy “How To Apply” page on their website. The information outlines earning restrictions for anyone interested in applying through the NYC Connect arm of the New York City Housing Development Corporation.

38 Sixth follows previous affordable housing lotteries for units at 461 Dean Street and 535 Carlton Avenue, which are also part of the mega-project near Barclays Center. The 23-story tower in Prospect Heights was developed by Forest City Partners and designed by SHoP Architects.
