Today’s housing lottery round-up features one building in Queens and two in Brooklyn with available affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days.
Hany Rizkalla Architect
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 1044 Bedford Avenue, a seven-story residential building in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The 16,335-square-foot development was designed by Hany Rizkalla Architect and developed by Prime Rok Real Estate, and yields 24 affordable housing units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are five units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $70,286 to $167,570.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 531 Classon Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Located between Putnam Avenue and Fulton Street, the interior lot is two blocks from the Franklin Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Haitao Bian of Y&L Classon Corp is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Most of the new buildings under construction in Melrose, at the heart of the South Bronx, are large and heavily subsidized. The city is already developing two sprawling affordable complexes in the neighborhood, La Central and Melrose Commons. But every once in a while, a developer manages to finance a small market-rate building like 411 East 151st Street, and YIMBY has the first look at the future seven-story development.
Prime Rok Real Estate has filed applications for an eight-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 150 East 108th Street, in East Harlem, two blocks from the 6 train’s stop at 110th Street. The 13,187 square-foot building will feature 2,209 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by the same square footage in health care facility on the second floor. Apartments will occupy the third through eighth floors, averaging 877 square feet apiece. Bushwick-based Hany Rizkalla is the architect of record.
