With East Harlem becoming hipper by the month, this affordable housing lottery for 12 units at the new building 2183 Third Avenue is a super steal, especially considering the building offers a gym, rooftop, recreation area, and laundry room. From $856/month studios to $1,114/month two-bedrooms, the apartments are available to households earning 60 percent of the area median income. Located at the northeast corner of East 119th Street and Third Avenue, the 12-story building is not only three blocks from the 6 train, but it’s right near local hot spots like the original Patsy’s Pizza and Hot Jalapeno, as well as the Target and Costco at East River Plaza.

Here’s our first look at 2183 Third Avenue, an under-construction mixed-use project in East Harlem being developed by Sharon Kahen and Haim Levi’s East 119th Street Development LLC. The parcel at the northeast corner of East 119th Street and Third Avenue is giving rise to a 12-story, 64,000-square-foot building designed by the prolific Gerald J. Caliendo Architects. The building will contain 59 rental units, retail space, and a medical facility at ground level.
In 2003, East Harlem underwent a 57-block rezoning spearheaded by the Bloomberg administration’s City Planning chair Amanda Burden. The revision, the neighborhood’s first in 40 years, increased density allowances along First, Second, and Third Avenues, while preserving the human-scaled midblocks in between. Over the past decade, more than a dozen residential mid-rises, roughly 8-12 stories, have blossomed along the area’s wide, well-trafficked corridors. Recent developments spurred by the rezoning include Barry Rice’s 119th & Third, Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work, and Kahen and Levi’s own CL Tower at Third Avenue and East 121st Street, two blocks north of their current project site.
