Located in between two of Manhattan’s best green spaces, Morningside Park and Central Park, a new rental has launched a lottery for 32 middle-income apartments. The 13-story building at 251 West 117th Street in Harlem sits behind the former St. Thomas the Apostle Church, which has been restored and converted into a community and performance space. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the units, which include $2,357/month studios, $2,526/month one-bedrooms, and $3,044/month two bedrooms.
Designed by Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects and developed by Artimus Development, the building offers residents a lounge, fitness center, children’s playroom, a common courtyard, a rooftop space, bike storage, and a laundry room.
In addition to being located just a few blocks from two major parks, 251 West 117th street is near a ton of high-rated eateries and bars, including Levain Bakery, Southern-comfort restaurant Melba, speakeasy 67 Orange Street, and craft beer bar Mess Hall. Nearest transit options are the B and C lines at 116th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard, the 2 and 3 lines at Malcolm X Boulevard, and the A train at the 110th Street- Cathedral Parkway Station.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the apartments at 251 West 117th Street until January 31, 2020. 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.
