All-electric skyscraper with over 40 affordable units coming to downtown Brooklyn

Some New Yorkers could be the first to live in a new fully electric apartment building in downtown Brooklyn in just a few months.
The building at 505 State St. has become a point of attraction for Brooklyn residents, standing at 44 stories tall. While it remains under construction, News 12 received a sneak peek of one of the completed apartments sitting on the 15th floor – a three-bedroom affordable housing unit with a view of the Barclays Center.  
There are 45 affordable housing units available in the building. The developers of the building, Alloy Development, say their vision was not just to create another place to live, but a home that’s sustainable for the environment.  
“To set the standards of creating an all-electric carbon-neutral building helps really encourage the rest of our peers to do the same on future developments,” said David McCarthy, vice president of Alloy Development.  
Affordable housing applications are open on NYC Housing Connect. Click here for more info on how to apply.
