The Clark, a newly-constructed market-rate rental complex located at 310 Clarkson Avenue, is launching a lottery for 51 middle-income, rent-stabilized apartments, announced its developer Hudson Companies.
“It’s a great value and opportunity to get a brand-new unit in this area that’s priced below market,” said Alison Novak, a principal of Hudson Companies. “And because it’s rent-stabilized you get to keep your unit, even if your income goes up.”
The eight-story building, which opened its doors last July, features studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. All units are furnished with dishwashers, garbage disposals, washers and dryers, and all the community spaces in the building offer free wi-fi. Other amenities include a sun-lit gym and a landscaped roof deck equipped with planters for rooftop gardening that can be rented for $100 per year.
“All apartments are exactly the same as our market-rate apartments. They have the same finishes and layouts, and everybody has access to the same amenities,” said Novak. “Our terrace offers lots of space to hang out including bbq grills and hammocks. We’re also pet-friendly and have built a dog run behind the building.”
Parking is available in the rear of the building, at an additional charge. The complex also features 8,000 square feet of retail space. A specialty pharmacy is slated to open later this year and others shops will follow.
“When thinking about retail, we’re trying to see what is already there and what else people may want,” said Novak. “We’re looking to bring a grocery store, a small deli and a coffee shop, but we still have to finalize that. We’re trying to find shops that people in the building, as well as the nearby community, will appreciate.”
Prices start at $1,525 a month for studios and go up to $2,635 for three-bedrooms. The lottery opens mid-October — the exact day has yet to be announced — through New York City’s Housing Preservation Department’s website Housing Connect and applications will be accepted for 60 days through mid-December. Applicants will be notified as early as January.
And once applicants are approved, they can move right in.
