The city on Tuesday launched a housing lottery for 33 units at an affordable housing rental in the West Bronx. The newly constructed 12-story building at 2051 Ryer Avenue sits between the Grand Concourse and Webster Avenue in the neighborhood of Mount Hope. New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, which include $605/month studios, $769/month one-bedrooms, $933/month two-bedrooms, and $1,069/month three-bedrooms.
Amenities include a community room, shared backyard garden, card-operated laundry, bike storage, and an on-site super and front-desk security. The building was constructed through the city’s Supportive Housing Loan Program, which sets aside the remaining units (those not offered through the lottery) for low-income or formerly homeless New Yorkers.
The building sits close to a number of attractions, including Richman (Echo) Park, Fordham University, the Bronx’s Little Italy, and, a little further east, the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden. Nearest transit options include the B, D trains at the Tremont Avenue station.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until July 8, 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 5. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
