As Cityrealty reported, construction topped out at Flow Chelsea at 211 West 29th Street last fall; the 24-story building’s distinguished stone facade and framed windows are all the way up, and as work winds down, an affordable lottery has been announced for 17 of the building’s 55 units. Individuals and households earning 70 to 130 percent of the area median income are eligible to apply for studio through three-bedroom apartments with rents that range from $1,169/month for studios to $3,051/month for a two-bedroom. As Chelsea‘s median rent ranges from $3,112/month for studios to $7,295/month for two-bedrooms (figures per CityRealty listings), this is quite a deal.

The building’s passive house construction includes continuous filtered air and triple-glazed windows, so residents will be saving money on energy costs. Building amenities include a gym, laundry room and bike room. The location offers excellent proximity to Chelsea’s culinary scene, Whole Foods, and the multitude of transportation options found at Pennsylvania Station.
