Developers Concern for Independent Living, who specialize in supportive housing, are behind the 135-unit project that has replaced an empty parcel of land at 3003 West 21st Street. The bulk of the building’s units (about 83) are being reserved for homeless veterans, while the rest are available to New Yorkers making either 50 percent or 60 percent of the area median income (AMI).
For those earning 50 percent of the AMI—which equates to incomes between $27,395 and $60,500, depending on household and income size—there are 12 one-bedrooms that rent for $795/month, 9 two-bedrooms renting for $917/month, and 3 three-bedrooms each going for $1,054/month. Under the 60 percent AMI (for incomes between $33,223 and $72,600), there are 15 one-bedrooms each priced at $929/month, 10 two-bedrooms for $1,121/month, and 3 three-bedrooms for $1,289/month.
The building’s perks include a 24-hour attended lobby, on-site resident manager, a fitness center, party rooms, a computer lounge, and a terrace.
The deadline to apply for the affordable units is March 13.
