In the Melrose section of the South Bronx, a new building is now accepting applications for 161 affordable apartments. Located at 735 Cauldwell Avenue, just a couple blocks from the 2 and 5 trains at Jackson Avenue, the building has a part-time attended lobby, roof deck, fitness center, party room, and laundry. The units are available to households earning 30, 50, or 100 percent of the area median income and range from $331/month studios to $1,910/month three-bedrooms.

The building, known as the Cauldwell Avenue Apartments, has a lot going for it in terms of families. It’s directly across the street from PS 157, the Grove Hill elementary school, and is a quick walk to several playgrounds. It’s also a 10-15 minute walk from the larger St. Mary’s Park.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the apartments at 735 Cauldwell Avenue until January 17, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf).
