Today’s housing lottery round-up features two buildings with affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days. Unfortunately, an update to the Housing Connect website this week has apparently left the system rather glitchy, as it now lists incorrect numbers of units remaining, and the photos and renderings have similarly become defunct, all in the midst of New York City’s worst housing crisis since the 1930s.
This week, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) released a call for developers to build affordable housing and a community facility space in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The city-owned vacant site at 2286 Church Avenue was formerly occupied by Public School 90. Preliminary plans for the 29,000-square-foot property call for approximately 100 affordable housing units and a community center with youth educational and vocational programming.
Construction may soon break ground at 868-870 New York Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn, following approvals from New York City’s Department of Buildings. Designed by Opera Studios Architecture, the existing town two-family, two-story will be completely redeveloped into a pair of multi-family properties.

Located at the intersection of Duryea Place and Flatbush Avenue, the corner lot is closest to the Beverly Road subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.
