Today’s housing lottery round-up features four buildings in Brooklyn and The Bronx with available affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 1616 Crosby Avenue in Pelham Bay, The Bronx.

Alfred Mitaj under the First Structure LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 2111 White Plains Road, in Pelham Gardens, The Bronx. Located between Lydig Avenue and Maran Place, the corner site is situated close to the Bronx Park Expressway. Two blocks north is the Pelham Parkway subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Jonathan Sopher, principal at Sopher Real Estate, is listed as the owner behind the applications.
