Just three blocks north of bustling 125th Street, a brand new all-affordable building known as the Frederick has just opened the lottery for 59 of its 75 units. Ranging from $562/month studios to $2,158/month three-bedrooms, the mixed-income apartments are available to households earning 40, 50, 60, and 110 percent of the area median income. In addition to being right near local landmarks such as the Apollo and the Red Rooster, the 15-story building at 2395 Frederick Douglass Boulevard is just a block away from St. Nicholas Park and a few blocks from the A, C, B, and D trains.
Perhaps the biggest perk of the Frederick is that it will have a supermarket on the ground floor as part of the city’s FRESH program, which “promotes the establishment and expansion of grocery stores in underserved communities by lowering the costs of owning, developing, and renovating retail space.” The new grocery store will be nearly double the size of the one that currently occupied the site. Other building amenities include a community room, outdoor recreation area, computer room, laundry room, after-school study, and bicycle storage.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at the Frederick until September 6, 2019. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Residents of Manhattan Community Board 10 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
