In the Mott Haven section of the Bronx, just a block away from the Madison Avenue Bridge and 138th Street subway station, a new apartment building has all the amenities one could want for a work-from-home life. There’s a cool roof deck complete with a dog run and firepits, a fitness center plus yoga room, game room, movie room, and several co-working spaces. And for those earning 130 percent of the area median income, a middle-income affordable housing lottery has just launched for 65 units, ranging from $2,000/month studios to $2,900/month three-bedrooms.

The 12-story building comes from Jacob Schwimmer of JCS Realty Group. It’s part of the 421a Tax Incentive Program, which grants tax breaks for new development that include 25-30 percent affordable housing.

The full suite of amenities includes a 24/7 doorman, gym, yoga room that opens to an outdoor terrace, children’s playroom, adult’s game room, cafe, covered parking, movie room, bike storage lockers, and landscaped roof deck.

The apartments range from studios to three-bedrooms and come with dishwashers and washer/dryers. Some also have patios or balconies.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 30, 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.
