The affordable apartments are within “Sunnyside Point”, the name of the four-story development rising at 47-16 Greenpoint Ave.
A single one-bedroom unit is available as part of the lottery for a monthly rent of $2,251.The unit is available for household sizes ranging from one person to three people and for households earning up to 130 percent of the Area Median Income.
A single-person household, for example, would need an income between $77,178 and $95,030 to be considered.
The remaining two units contain two-bedrooms, and go for $2,714 a month. Households sizes of two through five people can apply, with a starting income of $93,052 and going up to $146,510 for a family of five.
The building’s amenities include an elevator, roof deck common areas, and a laundry room.
The applications are open to all, with a general preference for those who live in New York City, and no special preference for Community Board 2 residents. Preference for a percentage of units will go to mobility-disabled applicants and those with vision or hearing disabilities.
To apply, visit Housing Connect online. Applications can also be sent by mail by following the instructions on the housing application flyer.
Applications must be postmarked or submitted online no later than Sept. 20, 2018.
The new development, at the corner of 48th Street and Greenpoint Avenue, has been in progress since 2015. AB Capstone, the developer, told the Sunnyside Post that the building underwent a new design recently, as the prior design was deemed “too generic.”
The project includes 10 units and commercial space in the first two floors, to be occupied by medical offices. The ground floor will hold a yet-to-be specified urgent care center, while the second floor will house a medical provider.
The development is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
