Applications are currently being accepted for 133 newly constructed, affordable units at 810 River Avenue in the Bronx, across from the old Yankee Stadium and just steps away from the team’s new playing field. The building includes approximately 26,000 square-feet of commercial and community facility space and a 61-space garage. Designed by SLCE Architects, the 17-story steel and plank tower features high-performance windows, Energy Star dishwashers, laundry rooms and hardwood floors. New Yorkers earning 40, 60, 90 and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for available units ranging from a $538 per month studio to $2,113 per month three-bedroom.
As 6sqft previously covered, developer M.Melnick & Co. began construction back in 2015 on the 190,000-square-foot complex, the first project to take advantage of the city’s 161st Street/River Avenue rezoning efforts in 2009. The development sits across from 10-acre Heritage Park or “the house that Ruth built.” Amenities include a gym, media lounge, community room, outdoor space and space for 67 bikes. Just off the 4, B and D trains at 161st Street-Yankee Stadium subway station, residents will be able to get to Midtown Manhattan in roughly fifteen minutes.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 810 River Avenue until September 29, 2017. Fifty percent of units are reserved for residents of Bronx Community Board 4.
