A housing lottery opened this week for 36 middle-income units at a new residential development in Queens. Developed by Cape Advisors and designed by Fogarty Finger, Astoria West at 30-77 Vernon Boulevard consists of three buildings across 2.5 acres along the waterfront. New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income, or between $77,143 for a single person to $167,570 for a household of five, are eligible to apply for the apartments, which range from $2,250/month one-bedrooms to $2,950/month two-bedrooms.

The property includes 40,000 square feet of amenities, including a landscaped courtyard, fitness center, yoga and dance studio, co-working communal spaces, garden space, and a rooftop pool club and deck providing unparalleled views of the city skyline.

Astoria West’s apartments have been spaciously designed and utilize oversized windows to fill the living spaces with natural light. The unit’s living rooms and bedrooms feature 9-foot ceiling heights, wide plank style floors, central heating and cooling, and an in-home washer and dryer.

Kitchens feature custom walnut cabinetry, quartz countertops, and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. The apartment’s bathrooms include large shows, polished chrome fixtures, custom vanities, and deep soaking bathtubs.

The development is offering new residents a number of incentives, including two months free on a two-year lease or one month free on a one-year lease, as well as free access to select amenities for one year. Up to $1,000 in moving expenses will be reimbursed if residents sign a two-year lease.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until May 19, 2022. 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.
