More than 250 affordable and middle-income apartments are up for grabs at a three-building development in the South Bronx. The rentals, found at 741 Concourse Village West, 702 Grand Concourse, and 180 East 156th Street, are located within the Grand Concourse Historic District and next to Franz Sigel Park. Qualifying New Yorkers earning between 30 and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, which start at $331/month studios and go up to $2,406/month three-bedrooms.
Developed by Azimuth Development Group and designed by Aufgang Architects, the complex, dubbed the Concourse Village West Apartments, contains 275 units across the three buildings. The project, which spans three sites along the southern section of the Grand Concourse, was financed under the “Mix-and-Match” program from the city’s Housing Development Corporation and Department of Housing Preservation and Development. More than 100 of the units at the development will remain permanently affordable.
Each contains ground floor retail, a community facility, and on-site parking. Residents will also have access to indoor and outdoor recreation areas, bike storage, and on-site laundry.
In addition to sitting next to the Franz Sigel Park, which has basketball courts and baseball fields, the rental buildings are located half of a mile from Yankee Stadium. Nearest transit options include the 2, 4, 6 trains at 149th Street-Grand Concourse and the B, D train at 161st Street-Yankee Stadium.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until June 17, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Bronx Community Board 4. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
