The Bronx is the state’s fastest growing county, and its development boom continues to add hundreds of units to the city’s depleted affordable housing stock. Now today, an affordable housing lottery has officially kicked off at 655 Morris Avenue that will bring 140 below-market rate units to the revitalized Melrose/Concourse Village section of the borough. Rising 15 stories from a long-vacant lot, the 217,579-square-foot development will contain a mix of apartment sizes: seven studios are priced from $788 per month; 62 one-bedrooms from $847; 65 two-bedrooms from $1,025; and 6 three-bedroom units from $1,182.

The apartments are created through the city’s LAMP program and are able to be rented out at affordable rents because of the low-cost financing offered to the developers. The program is reserved for households earning 60 percent of the annual median income (AMI) of the NYC region, therefore individuals can have a maximum income of $38,100 and households of six up to $105,600.
