A housing lottery opened this week for 95 affordable apartments at a newly constructed rental tower in the “city outside the city.” Located at 14 LeCount Place in downtown New Rochelle, the 27-story luxury building is the latest mixed-use development to rise in the bustling Westchester city. Eligible applicants must earn 50 or 70 percent of the area median income, between $44,650 annually for a one-person household and $89,250 annually for a four-person household. Applications are now being accepted for studios, one-, and two-bedroom apartments, ranging in price from $1,082/month to $1,953/month.
Developed by L+M Development Partners and Wilder Balter Partners, the high-rise rental includes 380 total units, with 95 of them affordable and 285 priced at market rate. The design from Beyer Blinder Belle features two glass and masonry towers atop a four-story podium. The project is scheduled to open sometime this fall.
In addition to the 6,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space, amenities at 14 LeCount Place include an outdoor pool on the 25th floor overlooking the Long Island Sound, two terraces, free parking, a dog run, a gym with indoor and outdoor areas, bike storage, children’s playroom, and several lounges.
Spacious apartments come with stainless steel appliances, vinyl flooring, lots of closet space, tenant-controlled heat and air conditioning, and in-unit laundry.
The development’s convenient location, in the center of downtown and just two blocks from the city’s Metro-North and Amtrak station, is definitely one of its biggest perks. Grand Central Terminal is just 40 minutes away by train.
“We’re thrilled to be delivering 95 affordable residences in downtown New Rochelle at a variety of income levels,” Katherine Kelman, senior director at L+M Development Partners, said. “Building affordable housing is key to our mission, and doing so in the context of a mixed-income building with great amenities and outdoor spaces will help the city grow in an equitable way. We encourage everyone to submit an application before August 2.”
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 2, 2021. Preference is given to artists certified by the New Rochelle Municipal Arts Commission. Complete details on how to apply are available here.
