An affordable housing lottery for 30 new apartments was just announced in the Exhibit Downtown, one of the Financial District’s hottest new rental buildings.

Arresting interiors from designer Andres Escobar reflect New York City’s raw past with poster-size images of ’70s clubs such as CBGB, and stars from the punk era such as Patti Smith and the Ramones. What makes this lottery even more interesting, though, is that it offers several levels of eligibility.

Applicants must earn 40 percent, 60 percent or 130 percent of the area median income. That invites people and households who make between $22,903 and $30,560; $36,640 and $57,240; and $74,435 and $124,020, respectively. See the chart below.
