Prices for high-end rentals in Long Island City have been steadily increasing in recent years, but here’s a chance to live in one of these new, luxury buildings for less. ONE LIC, located at 42-10 27th Street in Court Square, just launched a middle-income housing lottery for New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the median income. The units range from $2,241/month studios to $3,283/month three-bedrooms. Normally, units in this building rent from about $3,000 to $5,500. The apartments all have luxe finishes, and the amenities include a barbecue deck with skyline views and a 20th-floor fitness center.

ONE LIC is located on the same block as the 7, N, and W trains at Queensboro Plaza, which means you’re just one quick stop from Manhattan. The 21-story building was designed by Queens-based architect Raymond Chan, who afforded units with 10+ foot ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and many with balconies. The apartments have hardwood floors, stainless steel kitchen appliances, heated floors in the bathrooms, and washers/dryers in many units.
The full suite of amenities includes a 24-hour doorman, package room, rooftop and barbecue deck, laundry room, party room, bike storage, rooftop, and barbecue deck (additional fees apply to some).
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units at ONE LIC until June 9, 2020. 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.
