If you’re looking for a bit of the suburban lifestyle without leaving the boroughs, this affordable housing lottery in the Bronx may be for you. Fifteen apartments at Stagg Group’s Riverdale project The Station (so named for being adjacent to the 1 train station) at 5959 Broadway are up for grabs for New Yorkers earning 80 percent of the area median income. These include 12 $1,292/month one-bedrooms and three $1,458/month two-bedrooms. Just as good as the price is the location; the mixed-use building is directly across from the southeast entrance to Van Cortlandt Park, right near the swimming pool and Van Cortlandt House Museum. And for families, it’s also just a couple blocks from the prestigious Horace Mann School and Manhattan College.

The six, story 72-unit building was designed by Badaly & Badaly Architects. It has two levels of underground parking and more than 13,000 square feet of commercial space and 14,000 square feet for a community facility. Residents have access to a fitness center, rec room, and on-site laundry.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at 5959 Broadway until May 21, 2018. Fifty percent of units will be set aside for residents of Bronx Community Board 8. 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.
