Back in April, 6sqft shared an open waitlist for low-income units at the Brodsky Organization’s One Columbus Place. The mid-90s tower, located at the amazing intersection of Lincoln Center, Central Park, and the Upper West Side, has 700 total apartments, with 179 reserved as below-market rate. The second batch of affordable units, these set aside for middle-income New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income, are now also accepting applications for a 7,500-name waitlist for future vacancies. They range from $2,116/month studios to $2,733/month two-bedrooms, compared to the building’s market-rate listings that range from $3,200/month studios to $6,300/month two-bedrooms.

This stacked, Tetris-like facade is the type of thing we’re used to seeing in neighborhoods like Williamsburg and Long Island City, but ND Architecture and Design has brought a similar look to the less-trendy and more industrial area where South Slope meets Gowanus. The mixed-use building known as the Alexy was recently completed and features commercial space, parking, and 95 rental units, a mix of market rate and affordable apartments. The latter group of 19 residences, ranging from $813/month studios to $1,016/month two-bedrooms, is now accepting applications from New Yorkers earning 60 percent of the area median income, quite the deal considering market-rate units are renting from $2,400 to $5,100 a month.

Facing an unprecedented homelessness problem, in February, Mayor de Blasio announced plans to open 90 new shelters and expand 30 existing ones. But when it came down to which neighborhoods would house the developments, it became a not-in-my-backyard issue, especially in Crown Heights, an area already heavy with shelters and transitional houses, where the Mayor said three of the first five projects would be built. The animosity intensified shortly thereafter when it was announced that one such shelter would open in a new building at 267 Rogers Avenue, originally planned as a condo. But despite opposition from local residents and a temporary restraining order, the building began welcoming tenants over the summer, with space for 132 homeless families and another 33 units reserved for low-income New Yorkers. The latter, set aside for those earning 60 percent of the area median income, are now available through the city’s affordable housing lottery and range from $931/month one-bedrooms to $1,292/month three-bedrooms.
