Live Off Columbus Circle for $1,146/Month, Lottery Launching for 17 Affordable Units

June 3, 2016

Two years ago, work began on a seven-story, 17-unit building at 424 West 55th Street, on the fringes of Hell’s Kitchen and just south of Columbus Circle. The red brick structure known as West of Ninth was designed by Aufgang Architects and replaced a white brick church with a 3,000-square-foot theater that Arker Companies purchased in 2012 for $8.16 million. Initial reports thought the development would be only partly affordable, but a new posting on the city’s affordable housing list shows that all 17 of the units will be reserved for low- to middle-income tenants. The apartments will range from $1,146/month studios to $1,709/month three-bedrooms.

Complete details on how to apply can be found here (pdf). If you have questions about the offer, you must call the Affordable Housing Hotline at 311.
