A new housing lottery has opened in New York with apartments for $ 702
In New York, a new housing lottery has started - residents of the city are offered to rent 160 units of affordable housing in a new building at the address: 425 West 18th Street.
After the reconstruction of West Chelsea in 2006, the city promised to build affordable housing in the area. 425 West 18th Street was one of the projects aimed at achieving this goal, but it stopped during the recession.
The foundation of the Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel design (GKV Architects) was finally laid last summer, and now the developer Artimus is looking for tenants who have 50, 100, 160 and 165 percent of average income.
Skilled New Yorkers can apply for available units before 24 September 2018.
All amenities are available to residents, including a public hall, bike storage, laundry, backyard space.
