Live on the High Line for $596/Month, Lottery Launching for 75 Units at New West Chelsea Tower

August 15, 2016

As 6sqft reported last summer, “To provide a gradual transition from mid-rise West Chelsea to the enormous skyscrapers planned for the Far West Side, the Bloomberg administration in 2005 allowed more generous zoning between West 28th and 30th Streets along Tenth and Eleventh avenues.” One of the projects that took advantage of this upzoning was what’s now being called Maestro West Chelsea, a 35-story, 220-unit, mixed-use tower at 323 Tenth Avenue (the tallest in the neighborhood) and its two adjoining 13-story buildings at 507 West 28th Street, which are providing an additional 155 units. The two portions are on either ends of the High Line and were designed by Avinash K. Malhotra Architects.

Starting tomorrow, qualifying New Yorkers earning 40 or 50 percent of the area media income have the chance to apply for 75 affordable units in the buildings. They range from $596/month studios to $979/month two-bedrooms, and amenities include an attended lobby, recreation room, roof deck, fitness center, and parking (not to mention a much-sought-after location on one of the city’s biggest outdoor attractions).

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at Maestro West Chelsea starting tomorrow, August 16, until October 18, 2016. Residents of Manhattan Community Board 4 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.

    Did you two read the article? You need to go to the nychousingconnect website to apply for this development. There is also an address for Maestro West Chelsea in the advertisement there so that you can request an application to mail in (don’t apply on both the website and by mail, choose one method). Leaving a message here won’t help you get an apartment.
