In 2016, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. allocated nearly $3.3 million to create 851 affordable housing units across eight projects in the borough. One of these, MLK Plaza Apartments at 869 East 147th Street in ever-developing Mott Haven, received $500,000, and as of today 133 of its 165 units are up for grabs through the city’s housing lottery. The mixed-income units range from $464/month studios to $1,289/month three-bedrooms and have access to the building’s laundry room, fitness room, library and computer room, bike storage, and outdoor rec space and terrace.
