A year and a half ago, the nonprofit Unique People Services broke ground on Lynn’s Place, an affordable and supportive housing project in the South Bronx.The $25 million+ project was financed by the city and various organizations and will feature community space on the ground floor, a sunken courtyard, a landscaped back yard, and a seventh-floor green roof, in addition to on-site support services. Of its 69 units, 42 are set aside for individuals with a mental illness or those who were formerly homeless. The remaining apartments are reserved for those earning 50 or 60 percent of the area median income. Ranging from $710/month studios to $1,107/month two-bedrooms, they’ve come online through the city’s affordable housing lottery as of today.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at Lynn’s Place until September 15, 2017. Fifty percent of units are reserved for residents of Bronx Community Board 2. 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.
