The affordable housing lottery is open for 283 Powers Street, a three-story residential development in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Built in 1950, the 13,200-square-foot building yields 20 units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are six units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $68,538 to $159,640.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 598 Eagle Avenue in Woodstock, The Bronx. Located between East 149th Street and Terrace Place, the interior lot is three blocks west of the Jackson Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Samuel Weiss under the 598 Eagle LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The rapid pace of construction at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, finally reached the 65-story, 1,031-foot-tall pinnacle over Hudson Yards this past Tuesday. Despite a light flurry of snow showers, the dedication ceremony was successfully held with Tishman Speyer President and CEO Rob Speyer joined on by Gary LaBarbera, President of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, Peter Davoren, President and CEO of Turner Construction Company and a group of trade partners. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the steel-framed superstructure is located on a full-block parcel bound by Tenth and Eleventh Avenues and 34th and 35th Streets, and will yield 2.8 million square feet of office space.
Renderings and site plans from West Egg Development reveal a new four-story residential building in Marble Hill, Manhattan. Located at 106-108 Terrace View Avenue, the property will improve small vacant lot just minutes away from the Spuyten Duyvil waterfront area.
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.
