Trinity House is a 199-unit rental building at 100 West 92nd Street on the Upper West Side, just a block away from Central Park. It was built in 1968 by the Trinity School, which occupies the first three floors, as a Mitchell-Lama development. As 6sqft previously explained, this affordable housing program “was created in 1955 to provide affordable rental and cooperative housing to moderate- and middle-income families. These buildings are privately owned, but are under contract with New York state to keep prices affordable. Owners of these buildings receive tax abatements and low-interest mortgages.”
Back in 2013, Trinity House made headlines when the school received approvals from the city for a rent hike of up to 13 percent, more than three times the standard increase for rent-stabilized units that year. However, units have still remained affordable, and a 750-name waitlist has just opened for studio apartments that range from $432 to $503 a month for one- and two-person households earning between $17,263 and $90,625 a year.
