As Downtown Brooklyn’s BRIQ (237 Duffield Street) nears completion, an affordable housing lottery has launched for 22 units in the 23-story, 105-unit rental. One studio, 18 one-bedrooms, and three two-bedrooms are open to applicants earning 60% of the area median income. The deadline is Thursday, November 30, and our blog 6sqft has more information about the lottery here.

When BRIQ is completed, apartments above the 21st floor will have terraces. Building amenities will include bike storage and a laundry room. The building is located around the corner from the Hoyt Street subway stop, as well as a short walk away from the Jay Street MetroTech and DeKalb Avenue stops for an easy commute.

BRIQ is the latest in a wave of recent residential and commercial development in Downtown Brooklyn. City Point Brooklyn, the neighborhood’s largest shopping center and host to Trader Joe’s, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, and DeKalb Market Hall, recently opened a block away. Across the street, Offerman House (249 Duffield Street) just started leasing from $2,725/month (net effective). Hub (333 Schermerhorn Street), Brooklyn’s tallest residential building, will open soon.
