Last week, it was announced that the Parkchester section of the Bronx, served only by the 6 train, would be receiving a new Metro-North station, connecting it to Penn Station. And for those New Yorkers who qualify for the city’s newest affordable housing lottery–earning 40, 60, or 100 percent of the area median income–there’s a chance to get into the neighborhood on the heels of this news. There are 174 mixed-income apartments up for grabs at the new, two-building development Westchester Mews, and they range from $462/month studios to $1,888/month three-bedrooms.

Located at 2035 Newbold Avenue and 2044 Westchester Avenue, the project also has commercial and community facility space. Tenants have access to a card-operated laundry room, bike storage, and terrace. Until Metro-North comes to town, the Parkchester stop on the 6 train is just two blocks away.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at Westchester Mews until April 1, 2019. Fifty percent of units are reserved for residents of Bronx Community Board 9. 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.
