There are 25 middle-income apartments available at a newly constructed building in the South Bronx through the city’s affordable housing lottery. Located at 603 Pontiac Place in Melrose, the six-story rental is conveniently located one block from the 2 and 5 subway trains, making a commute to Midtown less than 30 minutes. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 80 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, which include 15 one-bedrooms for $1,320/month and 10 two-bedrooms for $1,591/month.

Residents can enjoy a roof terrace, bike storage, and an on-site laundry room. The largest park in the South Bronx, St. Mary’s Park and Recreation Center, is nearby and boasts a basketball court, indoor pool, dog-friendly areas, and a handball court.

Nearest transit options include the 2 and 5 trains at Jackson Avenue and Westchester Avenue, the 6 train at Southern Boulevard and 149th, and the Bx42, Bx40, and Bx4A buses.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until July 7, 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 Board 1. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
