Today’s housing lottery round-up features five buildings with affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days. Unfortunately, an update to the Housing Connect website this week has apparently left the system rather glitchy, as it now lists incorrect numbers of units remaining, and the photos and renderings have similarly become defunct, all in the midst of New York City’s worst housing crisis since the 1930s.
1488 New York Avenue
The affordable housing lottery is now open for BPHN Senior Residences at 1488 New York Avenue, a seven-story mixed-use development in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Designed by Heritage Architecture and developed by Evangelical Crusade Christian Church and BEL Community Development, the 65,335-square-foot building will yield a total 89 units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 58 studio apartments for senior residents at 50 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $0 to $45,500.
BEL Community Housing Associates has released updated renderings of a new apartment building in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located at 1488 New York Avenue, the seven-story project will primarily function as a residence for senior citizens. A ground-floor community facility will provide services for those living in the apartments up above.
