In 2014, Madison Realty Capital bought the site, formerly Beigel’s Bakery, for $23.5 million and construction began the following year. A housing lottery launched two years ago at the building for affordable units set aside for New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income.
All apartments feature oak wood floors, white pine custom cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances, in-unit laundry, and flexible open-layouts. Amenities include a rooftop, fitness center, bike storage, tenant lounges, and an attended lobby.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 555 Waverly Avenue until July 9, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
