A housing lottery opened last week for 40 middle-income apartments at a new residential building in the Bronx. Located at 2065-2067 Ryer Avenue in Fordham Heights, the 12-story building is being developed by the UA Builders Group. New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income, or between $52,766 annually for a single person to $167,570 for a family of five, are eligible to apply for the apartments, which range from $1,539/month studios to $1,878/month two-bedrooms.
Designed by Badaly Architects, the building’s amenities include a shared laundry room, playground, recycling center, bike storage, and an outdoor terrace.
The apartments come equipped with energy-efficient appliances, hardwood floors, and intercom systems. Tenants will be responsible for electricity, and rent includes heat and hot water. The property is located in close proximity to the B, D, and 4 trains.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until April 25, 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.
