The Sioné, located at 171 Suffolk Street on the corner of East Houston, has launched an affordable housing lottery for 23 units, available to those earning 40, 60, and 130 percent of the area median income. Not only does the building sit in a prime Lower East Side location (just one block from Clinton Street Baking Company and three from Katz’s), but it offers a slew of amenities like a gym and outdoor terraces, as well as apartments with modern finishings and high-tech upgrades. The available units range from $613/month studios to $2,200/month one-bedrooms, a much lower price than the market-rate rentals which start at $3,926/month for studios and $5,078/month for one-beds.
The full suite of amenities is a 24-hour attended lobby with a garden, on-site resident manager, cellar lounge and screening room, bike storage, coin-operated laundry room, gym, ninth-floor terrace, and a 14th-floor rooftop terrace that boasts outdoor barbecue grills, seating, and an open-air theater. The posting notes, however, that additional fees may apply, and the amenities come as a package and cannot be individually selected.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the apartments at 171 Suffolk Street until February 6, 2020. Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Manhattan Community Board 3. 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.
