A new affordable housing lottery has launched for Roosevelt Parc, a brand-new rental in Jackson Heights, Queens designed by Marvel Architects. The mixed-use project has a unique Flatiron-esque shape that lends itself to a large outdoor garden. There’s also a huge roof deck complete with outdoor kitchens and grills and various lounging and dining areas, among a slew of other amenities. There are 47 units available to those earning 130 percent of the area median income, ranging from $1,121/month studios to $3,283/month three-bedrooms.
Roosevelt Parc is conveniently located just off the Broadway exit of the BQE and just a few blocks each from the 7 train at 69th Street-Fisk Avenue and the E, M, R trains at 65th Street. It’s also a short walk to the LIRR at Woodside.
In addition to the outdoor space mentioned, the 40,000 square feet of amenities at Roosevelt Parc include a 24-hour concierge, on-site parking garage, state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga lawn, internet lounge, children’s playroom, bike storage, and laundry room. There’s also a rooftop lounge that features the Oculus viewpoint, a fireplace, dining room, pool table, and a screening room. From here and the rooftop, you have panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.
The renderings above show the mixed-use nature of the building. On the ground floor will be 8,400 square feet of retail space; the second floor will be 19,000 square feet of community facility space.

In total, there are 154 apartments, 30 percent of which have private balconies or terraces. The two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes have in-unit washer/dryers.
Though the prices are not as low as some affordable housing lotteries, they are cheaper when compared to the market-rate units, which start at $1,695/month for studios, $2,000/month for one-bedrooms, and $3,750/month for three-bedrooms, according to current availabilities.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until January 12, 2021. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
