Greenland Forest City Partners is offering 298 affordable studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments at 535 Carlton Avenue (corner of Dean Street). Apartments will be awarded through a lottery administered by the City of New York. Eligible tenants may earn between $20,126 for an individual and $173,415 for a family of six. Each kitchen features a gas range, microwave and dishwasher.

These units, offered to prospective tenants of a wide range of incomes, represent an opportunity for community members concerned about being priced out of Prospect Heights to receive a stabilized lease at an affordable rent. Residents of Brooklyn community districts 2, 3, 6 and 8 receive lottery preference for 50% of all affordable apartments offered at Atlantic Yards.
