BROOKLYN, NY (PIX11) -- Nearly 60,000 New Yorkers entered a lottery for affordable housing units in Brooklyn.

The 105 low-rate apartments available in Greenpoint received 58,832 applications -- the most applicants to enter any city lottery so far this year.

The building will cost $67 million to build and will have 210 units available by the end of this year. The 1133 Manhattan Avenue building includes a rooftop lounge with city views, fitness center and business center with Wi-Fi, among other amenities.

Some of the lucky winners will only have to pay $650 a month for a brand new two-bedroom apartment.
