At the corner of Second Avenue and 92nd Street, just a few short blocks from the Second Avenue Subway, Extell Development has completed their first all-affordable housing project. Located at 1768 Second Avenue and designed by Curtis + Ginsberg, the development is comprised of two separate buildings, one 11 stories and the other six stories, for a combined 28 units of below-market-rate housing. These units are reserved for households earning 70 or 80 percent of the area median income, ranging from $1,018/month studios to $1,740/month three-bedrooms.
In addition to the incredible location near Carl Schurz Park and all the action on Second Avenue, the building offers a roof deck, laundry room, and bike room.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 1768 Second Avenue until April 16, 2019. Fifty percent of units are set aside for residents of Manhattan Community Board 8. 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.
