The City has opened up 69 one-bedroom units in East New York for seniors earning less than $39,800 a year, or $45,000 for a couple. The building on Schroeder Street is one of eight planned as part of the redevelopment of the former Brooklyn Developmental Center site.

The monthly rents for the units would be 30 percent of the tenant's adjusted annual gross income, and one member of the household had to be aged 62 or older, Brownstoner reported.

The lottery is the third to open in Fountains Seaview, on the former Brooklyn Developmental Center site at 888 Fountain Avenue, which will eventually include eight buildings with mixed residential, retail and community space, with 397 of the residential units being made affordable.

The new building includes a senior support service room, bike room, laundry and outdoor recreation area, and parking is available at a fee. To apply for the lottery visit NYC Housing Connect.
