The affordable housing lottery is open for Mother Gaston Hinsdale Homes, 70 residential units for sale across 17 buildings in New Lots and Brownsville, Brooklyn. The two- and three-bedroom residences are being built under NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development‘s Neighborhood Infill Housing Opportunities Program and are only available to first-time owners. Available on NYC Housing Connect are the 70 homes for residents at 90 to 120 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $62,464 to $169,200.
Work remains stalled on 50 West 66th Street, a 69-story residential tower that is slated to become the tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Last summer, it appeared that progress would resume on the 775-foot-tall Snøhetta-designed project after a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete construction. However, later in the year, Landmark West filed its “Article 78” petition against the developers regarding the height and zoning of the edifice. The case was set to head to the New York State Supreme Court after the Board of Standards voted 2-2 on the appeal, but no further information is available. If realized, the tower would surpass the height of the nearby 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which NIMBYs also sought and failed to curtail.
Renderings from Niles Bolton Associates offer a first glimpse of a new 26-story tower in the heart of downtown New Rochelle. Located at 500 Main Street, the building will house a mix of rental apartments and amenity spaces, a church, retail space, and enclosed parking area.

Available on NYC Housing Connect are two units for sale for residents at 60 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $38,860 to $61,440.
