The new apartments hugging Morningside Heights's epic Cathedral of St. John the Divine have yet to hit the rental market en masse, but as of today, the lottery for the development's affordable units is open. Enclave at the Cathedral's two towers are offering up 87 apartments for applicants who make between $29,726 and $51,780 annually, according to 6sqft. Applicants must also be chill with the buildings' proximity to the cathedral, which has drawn ire from the community at large.
[UPDATE: Welp, looks like Friday got the best of us. Rentals in the building will actually start at $867.]
Here's whats up for grabs:
· 27 studios asking $867/month
· 40 one-bedrooms asking $931/month
· 20 two-bedrooms asking $1,183/month
Developer The Brodsky Organization signed a 99-year lease for the space on the church grounds and tapped Handel Architects to design the 13- and 15-story buildings.
To apply, head on over to the Housing Development Corporation's website. The lottery is open through April 12.
