A housing lottery opened this week for 84 affordable units at a new rental in the Bronx. Located on East 211th and East 212th Streets between White Plains Road and Holland Avenue, Williamsbridge Gardens offers its residents a wide variety of amenities and services for low-income and formerly homeless households. New Yorkers earning 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80 percent of the area median income, or between $26,229 for a single person and $132,400 for a household of seven, are eligible to apply for the apartments, which range from $681/month one-bedrooms to $2,273/month three-bedrooms.
For the available one and two-bedroom units with an income limit of 40 percent of the AMI and rent indicated as zero, eligible applicants must qualify for Section 8 and will pay 30 percent of their household income in rent, according to NYC Housing Connect.
Developed by L+M Development Partners and B&B Urban, the property consists of two eight-story buildings that sit on East 211th and East 212th Streets, according to the developer’s website.
Designed by MHG Architects, Williamsbridge Gardens offers residents access to a large landscaped courtyard, a community room, a computer lab, a children’s library, a fitness center, a laundry room, and a bike room in each building. The building utilizes a number of sustainability features, including a rooftop solar panel array, and energy-efficient appliances.
The Center for Urban Community Services will be providing services for low-income and formerly households, as well as residents with other special needs.
Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until August 18, 2022. Fifty percent of the units are set aside for residents of Bronx Community Board 12. Complete details on how to apply are available here. Questions regarding this offer must be referred to NYC’s Housing Connect department by dialing 311.
