Applications are now being accepted for 144 mixed-income apartments at a brand new East Harlem building. Developed by SKA Marin, the building at 1912 First Avenue, called The Gilbert on First, rises 16 stories and contains just over 150 apartments. Qualifying New Yorkers earning between $13,200 and $199,650 annually can apply for the apartments, which range from a $328/month studio to a $3,009/month three-bedroom.
Amenities at The Gilbert include a mail room, bike storage, community lounge, fitness center, and a landscaped garden with a play area for children. Located on East 97th Street, the residences offer a mix of Manhattan and East River views.
The developer opened a lottery two years ago for another affordable East Harlem building that sits next to The Gilbert. Draper Hall consists of 203 subsidized units for seniors earning between $0 and $38,200 per year.
Nearest transit options include the 4 and 6 trains at 96th Street and Lexington and the Q train at 96th Street and Second Avenue. There is also the M15, M101, 102, and 103 buses available.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at The Gilbert on First until June 17, 2019. Residents of Manhattan Community Board 11 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf).
