The first affordable apartments to become available at Atlantic Yards have entered the City lottery process. 461 Dean Street, formerly known as B2, is offering 181 affordable studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments. Eligible tenants may earn between $20,675 for an individual and $144,960 for a family of four. Each apartment features stainless steel kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer. More information, including a detailed breakdown of the available units by income target, is available at

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.

On May 24 at 6:30PM, representatives from Forest City Ratner Companies and Mutual Housing Association of New York will present an information session at PS 9 for community members interested in applying for an affordable apartment at 461 Dean Street.

Applications for the 461 Dean Street lottery are made through HPD's Housing Connect site (applications close June 27). If you have not yet registered for Housing Connect, you may do so here.
