The 60 lottery units comprise about 30 percent of the building’s 197total units. They are qualitatively the same as the building’s market-rate units, which start at $2,279 for studios and range to $4,704 for 2-bedrooms. All lottery units will have access (for an additional fee) to the Otto’s amenities, which include a rooftop common area with pool, garden, and stellar views of the Manhattan skyline. There’s also a gym, lounge, game room and library.

The building is less than a five-minute walk from the G train at Greenpoint Avenue, and 10 minutes from the L at Bedford. The building will also offer a free private shuttle bus to the Court Square subway stop in Long Island City.
