In April, the affordable housing lottery commenced for 79 units at Building A of the Bronx’s Crotona Terrace development in Crotona Park East. Now, 107 additional apartments are up for grabs at Building B, ranging from $368/month studios to $1,740/month three-bedrooms, broken down for those earning no more than 30, 40, 50, 60, or 100 percent of the area media income. This mixed-income setup is similar to other projects in the Crotona Park East neighborhood, which was rezoned nearly six years ago to allow more residential in a historically industrial area to create increased affordable housing.
Crotona Terrace buildings A and B will altogether have 175 affordable apartments, in addition to 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and commercial space. Building B’s amenities include a parking lot, laundry room, and bicycle storage. As 6sqft noted previously, the development is just a few short blocks from the park, but “it’s also directly adjacent to the Cross Bronx Expressway and elevated tracks of the 2/5 trains.”
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until March 15, 2017. Residents of the Bronx Community Board 4 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.
