Rendering via HANAC
46 newly-constructed affordable units at the HANAC Corona Senior Residence at 54-17 101st Street in Corona, Queens are now available via the city’s affordable housing lottery. According to QNS, it will be the first affordable senior housing structure in the United States to meet the Passive House Institute design standards and the first affordable housing complex in Corona in three decades. Individuals or households that have at least one household member who is 62 years of age or older and who earn between $0 and $38,200 annually are eligible to apply. Five percent of units will be set aside for mobility-disabled applicants and two percent for vision- or hearing-disabled applicants.
46 of the building’s 68 apartments–studios and one-bedroom units–are being offered through the lottery system, with the rest reserved for vulnerable seniors. The building features a high-tech security system throughout and amenities that include a community room, laundry and an outdoor recreation area and on-site social services such as wellness programs. 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.
