The lottery for 169 affordable apartments at 435 West 31st Street, the rental tower in mini-megaproject Manhattan West, will open on September 6 bringing with it studios priced from $913/month (h/t 6sqft). Rentals up for grabs include 53 studios, 89 one-bedrooms, 25 two-bedrooms, and two three-bedrooms.
As with all affordable housing lotteries, strict income brackets apply. The annual income of those applying must be between $32,640 and $38,100 to be eligible for a $913/month studio; between $34,972 and $43,500 for a $980/month one-bedroom; $41,966 and $54,360 for a $1,183/month two-bedroom; and $48,446 and $64,060 for a $1,359/month three-bedroom. Income brackets are contingent on the household size.
The affordable rentals come with complimentary access to the building’s bike repair station, children’s playroom, library, lounge, game room, and laundry room. Additional fees apply for access to its storage, bike storage, gym—a La Palestra that offers up classes and a full-sized basketball court—pet spa, arcade, golf simulator, and rooftop lounge.
The 62-story, 844-apartment building topped out in April and residents of its market-rate portion are expected to begin moving in in early 2017. The affordable housing lottery is open through November 7 and can be applied through NYC’s Housing Connect website. For more information head this way.
