Applications are now being accepted for 96 income-restricted apartments in the South Bronx, with half of those units set aside for seniors. Located at 700 Manida Street, the Hunts Point rental contains eight stories and 108 total units. To apply for the senior housing, New Yorkers must have at least one household member who is 62 years of age or older and earns $40, 960 or less, annually. Eligible applicants will pay 20, 30, or 40 percent of the area median income (AMI) for units that range from a $211/month studio to a $667/month one-bedroom. For the remaining 48 units, New Yorkers earning 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80 percent of the AMI can apply for apartments, ranging in price from an $810/month two-bedroom to $1,960/month three-bedroom.
Designed by RKTB Architects, 700 Manida Street measures 85,000 square feet and includes roughly 3,7000 square feet of community space, including a green rooftop. Other perks include on-site laundry and storage room for bikes.
The new rental sits a block from the newly anointed Manida Street Historic District, which consists of 42 residential properties which represent an intact example of early 20th-century development in the neighborhood, according to the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
While the area remains largely commercial and industrial, a number of green spaces can be accessed easily from the building, including the Hunts Point Playground, the Julio Carballo Fields and the Hunts Point Recreation Center, and the Bronx River-facing Hunts Point Riverside Park. Transit options include the 6 train at Longwood Avenue and the Bx6, Bx6-SBS buses.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 28, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Bronx Community Board 2. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
