Applications are now being accepted for the Columbia Hicks Apartments, the 94-unit building now being built on the east side of Hicks between Baltic and Warren.
These are so-called affordable rentals, so income restrictions apply. Interestingly, current residents of Brooklyn Community Board 6 will receive preference for 50 percent of the units. Preference will also be given to persons with hearing, mobility and visual impairments and municipal employees.
You can get an application, and learn more about the requirements, here. Applications must be postmarked by June 25, so act fast!
