Via Douglaston Development
New York City Seniors now have more options in the five boroughs as the lottery launches today for Staten Island’s Seaview Site C, comprised of 160 newly-constructed units at 155-175 Friendship Lane in the Todt Hill neighborhood. The Douglaston Development project is exclusively for low-income senior citizens and consists of 82 studios, 78 one-bedroom apartments, and a resident manager’s unit. Amenities include an indoor common area, outdoor patio, laundry room, and on-site parking.
The project is the first low-income senior housing project in New York City financed under HPD’s Senior Affordable Rental Apartments (SARA) program. The project is also financed by HDC Extremely Low & Low-Income Affordability (ELLA), Low Income Tax Credit, and Project Based Section 8 housing. To be eligible, individuals or households must have at least one household member who is 62 years of age or older and who meets the income and household size requirements listed in the table above.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments until April 5, 2018. A percentage of units is set aside for mobility-disabled applicants (5%) and vision- or hearing-disabled applicants (2%). Applicants who live in New York City receive a general preference for apartments. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
