A housing lottery launched this week for 105 mixed-income units at a newly constructed building in the Mount Hope neighborhood of the Bronx. Designed by Aufgang Architects, the more than 110,000-square-foot complex at 2028 Creston Avenue features 114 residential units and space for retail and community activities. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 30, 40, 50, 60, 90 and 120 percent of the area median income can apply for units ranging from a studio for $368/month to a three-bedroom for $1,965/month.
The Creston Avenue project falls under Mayor Bill de Blasio’s affordable housing plan, which has a goal of bringing 300,000 apartments to the city by 2026. When the plan was announced by developer Schur Management in 2015, the Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz Jr., called the complex “the quintessential example of a building that we all want in this neighborhood.”
Amenities at the 11-story development include a laundry room, landscaped outdoor recreation area, community center and study space. There is also an underground parking garage fit for 40 cars.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 2028 Creston Avenue until May 21, 2018. Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Bronx Community Board 5. 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.
