Applications are currently being accepted for 379 recently constructed, affordable units in a 26-story rental tower, called Alvista Towers, in Jamaica–a Queens neighborhood on the brink of transformation as new residential and commercial developments continue to take root. Amenities at this spacious housing complex located at 147-36 94th Avenue include on-site laundry, playroom, an outdoor courtyard, fitness center, yoga room and a rooftop terrace. Qualifying New Yorkers earning 50, 60, 120, 130 and 165 percent of the area median income can apply to units ranging from a $707 per month studio to a $2,611 per month two-bedroom.
The Harlem-based developer, Artimus Construction, first filed permits for Alvista Towers in 2015. Designed by GF55 Partners, the residential building sits near Jamaica’s transit hub, including the E, J and Z trains, the LIRR and the AirTrain to JFK.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments until January 2, 2018. Residents of Queens Community Board 12 will be given preference for 50 percent of the units. 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.
