A housing lottery launched on Monday for 494 affordable apartments at a sprawling development in the South Bronx. Two buildings of the five-building complex La Central are now accepting applications for the units, which range from $395/month studios to $2,689/month four-bedrooms. The rentals, located at 556 and 600 Bergen Avenue, contain a 50,000-square-foot YMCA, GrowNYC-operated rooftop gardens, and ground-floor retail. New Yorkers earning 30, 40, 50, 60, and 130 percent of the area median income can apply for the apartments.

The 11-story condo offers only six units that begin at $9.8 million, but BKSK Architects‘ purposeful inclusion of large-scale art, both in the lobby and on the building itself, keep the neighborhood’s creative history in play. The project has now launched its official page, which bring us new looks at its facades, art work, and interiors.
