Affordable housing lotteries launch tomorrow for apartments at not one but two Harlem buildings, which means a grand total of 24 units (it’s something?) will soon be up for grabs.
First up: 40 West 126th Street, where there are just two newly constructed units available to qualified folks making less than 60 percent of the area median income. Monthly rent for the pair of one-bedrooms is $1,015, with income requirements between $34,800 and $40,080/year for one person, or $34,800 and $45,840 for two. Preference for “50 percent of the units”—so, one of them—will go to existing residents of Manhattan Community Board 10.
Next: 2211 Third Avenue, where there are a whopping 22 studios, one-, and two-bedrooms up for grabs in a Hot Karl-designed building. Those units—earmarked for applicants making less than 60 percent of the area median income—start at $913 an for a studio, and go up to $1,183 for a two-bedroom. The digs are open to New Yorkers earning between $33,189 and $57,240 per year, depending on household size and which type of apartment you’re hoping for. The building comes with some pretty notable amenities, too, including a doorman, elevator, fitness center, roof access, a bike room, on-site parking, and in-unit laundry.
Applications for units at 40 West 126th Street are due August 3rd, so if you’re interested, get on it. You’ve got a little more time for the lottery at 2211 Third Ave, though: applications for those units (with washer/dryers!) are due September 12th.
