With East Harlem becoming hipper by the month, this affordable housing lottery for 12 units at the new building 2183 Third Avenue is a super steal, especially considering the building offers a gym, rooftop, recreation area, and laundry room. From $856/month studios to $1,114/month two-bedrooms, the apartments are available to households earning 60 percent of the area median income. Located at the northeast corner of East 119th Street and Third Avenue, the 12-story building is not only three blocks from the 6 train, but it’s right near local hot spots like the original Patsy’s Pizza and Hot Jalapeno, as well as the Target and Costco at East River Plaza.
2183 Third Avenue was designed by Gerald J. Caliendo Architects. Developers Sharon Kahen and Haim Levi bought the site for $3.8 million in 2015. When complete, it will have a total of 58 apartments, some of which will have private outdoor space. It will also have a medical facility and retail space on the ground floor.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 2183 Third Avenue until June 20, 2018. Fifty percent of units are reserved for residents of Manhattan Community Board 11. 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.
