Mayor Bill de Blasio, Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, local officials, Greenland Forest City Partners and community groups announced the opening of 535 Carlton. The building’s 298 homes are all affordable, and reserved for New Yorkers with household incomes of between $20,100 for an individual and $149,000 for a family of three. Preference goes to municipal employees and those with vision, hearing or mobility disabilities.

“Our administration is delivering on the affordable housing this community was promised. For hundreds of families right here in Brooklyn, these homes represent economic security, the chance to save a little every month and get ahead, and the assurance that they’ll be able to afford to stay in the borough they love,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“Having an affordable place to call home and sleep at night is a prerequisite for experiencing the American Dream. The addition of hundreds of critically-needed affordable housing units at 535 Carlton is welcome news for Brooklyn,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said.
