A housing lottery opened this week for over 350 units of mixed-income housing in Jamaica, Queens. The luxury 25-story rental, called Alvista Rise, is located at 147-25 94th Avenue, across the street from a major train station, home to the subway, Long Island Air Road, and AirTrain to JFK Airport. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 50, 120, and 165 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments, priced from $683/month for studios and up to $2,804/month for two-bedroom units.
Developed by Artimus Construction and Phoenix Realty Development, the mixed-use building contains 543 total units, with about 30 percent of them priced at market rate and the remaining affordable. The project sits across the street from the high-rise Alvista Towers, a development from the same team that opened in 2018. GF55 Architects designed both towers.
Newly constructed residences, a mix of studios, one-, and two-bedrooms, feature spacious layouts, high-end finishes, and panoramic views. Amenities of the building include a 24-hour attended lobby, a recreational terrace, roof lounge, a fitness center with a yoga room, laundry room, kids room, on-site parking, and more.
The residential building is next to one of the city’s busiest transit hubs, which includes the E, J and Z subway lines, the LIRR, and the AirTrain to JFK.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until February 7, 2022. Fifty percent of the units are set aside for residents of Queens Community Board 12. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
