Known as Astoria Cove, this newly constructed 28-unit rental at 26-27 2nd Street is just a block away from the under-construction Halletts Point mega-development. The seven-building project will bring 2,400 housing units to the Astoria neighborhood, as well as a stop for the East River Ferry, a supermarket, school, and waterfront park. Six households earning 60 percent of the median income have a chance to live near all the upcoming action through the city’s affordable housing lottery that’s offering $889/month one-bedrooms and $1,001/month two-bedrooms.
Apartments at Astoria Cove, many of which come with private balconies, have open floorplans and modern finishes. The building offers a laundry room, roof deck, and on-site parking.
But perhaps the best perk will be the proximity to Halletts Point, scheduled to open in 2018. In addition to the convenient retail offerings, there will be over 100,000 square feet of publicly accessible outdoor space, with a transformed waterfront esplanade, parklands, and renovated playgrounds.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at Astoria Cove until June 26, 2017. Fifty percent of units are reserved for residents of the Queens Community Board 1. 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.
