In the South Bronx, affordable housing lottery opens for 31 mixed-income units near Yankee Stadium
At 3120 Park Avenue and 451 East 159th Street, in the Melrose section of the Bronx, 31 affordable apartments are up for grabs for New Yorkers earning 30, 50, 100, and 110 percent of the area median income. The Park and Elton Apartments, which are located close to Yankee Stadium and many public transit options, have available units ranging from $359/month studios to $2,052/month two-bedrooms.
The buildings have an on-site super, bike storage, and a laundry room. They’re a quick walk to the 4, B, and D trains at Yankee Stadium, and the Melrose stop on the Harlem line of Metro-North is just a few blocks away. The project was done by Xenolith Partners LLC, a woman-owned affordable housing development company. They outfitted the buildings with Energy Star appliances and lighting, as well as high efficiency plumbing fixtures.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until May 22, 2020. Complete details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Preference for 50 percent of the units will be given to residents of Bronx Community Boards 1 and 3. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
