Applications are now being accepted for 24 new affordable rentals at 233 Landing Road in the University Heights neighborhood of the Bronx. The newly-minted elevator building will offer residents a computer lab, a live-in super, bicycle storage, a community room and an on-site laundry room. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 50 and 60 percent of the area median income may apply for units ranging from a $714/month one-bedroom to a $1,058/month two-bedroom.

The 1 and 4 subways stop nearby, as do the Metro-North Hudson line and several buses. As the New York Observer reports, Landing Road Residence is the inaugural project in a new NYC housing model called Home Stretch that co-locates homeless shelters with permanently affordable apartments.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 233 Landing Road until January 18, 2018. Residents of Bronx Community Board 7 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. 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.
