The developer of a new apartment complex in Hawaii Kai will be holding a lottery on Wednesday, September 9, for 54 "affordable" rental units. 

About 200 people applied for the low-income rent, and will have approximately a 1-in-4 odds of being selected for an apartment. 

Applicants may not earn more than 80% of the median area income, which is $76,650 for a family of four. 

Monthly rent for an affordable 2 bedroom unit is $1,495. Market rents for the same size unit will go for about $2,500 per month. 

7000 Hawaii Kai Drive will have amenities such as a pool, movie theater, fitness center, and barbeque area.
