Applications are now being accepted for 30 brand new one-bedroom units set aside for New York seniors. The St. Vincent de Paul Senior Apartments, located at 909 Beck Street in the Bronx neighborhood of Longwood, sit next to a nursing home operated by the Archcare, the developer behind the housing complex. To apply, New Yorkers must be–or have at least one household member who is– 62 years of age or older, qualify for Section 8 benefits, and earn $42, 700 or less annually.

Designed by OCV Architects, the eight-story building contains 89 units in total, spread out across roughly 70,000 square feet. Residents will have access to a card-operated laundry room, a community room and lounge, a passive outdoor space, a garden, and bike storage.

The building is fully accessible. An on-site social worker will be stationed there to help residents with care coordination, social services, and wellness promotion, according to the housing lottery advertisement. Just a block from the building is the Bill Rainey Park and the Hunts Point Library, with the Hunts Point Avenue 6 train station located a bit further north.
