Applications are now being accepted for middle-income units at Beacon Mews, an affordable housing building located in Harlem, just a block away from the Harlem River and the Madison Avenue Bridge into the Bronx. Amenities at 34 West 139th Street include a doorman, fitness center and spacious community courtyard, and the building is currently offering $1,900/month one-bedrooms, $2,350/month two-bedroom, and $2,600/month two-bedrooms with a terrace. These units, however, are reserved for households earning between $67,098 to $238,500 annually.
The building was developed through the New Opportunities Program of the New York City Housing Development Corporation. Both Beacon Towers, located on West 138th Street, and Beacon Mews replaced a formerly vacant lot owned by the city and were first constructed under the Bloomberg Administration’s New Housing Marketplace plan.
In addition to a courtyard and gym, the building is also equipped with a security facility, laundry room, and a garage.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable apartments at 34 West 139th Street until units are fully rented. 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.
