Winners of Hunters Point South Lottery Are Starting to be Notified


Feb. 11, 2015 By Christian Murray

Some of the winners of the Hunters Point South affordable housing lottery have been notified and have been called in for an interview, according to the New York Housing Preservation & Development.

HPD said that the tenant selection process is well on its way and that interview letters will be distributed in rounds until all the units are filled.

More than 92,000 people applied for the 924 affordable affordable apartments on offer. The units are in two buildings–one at 1-50 50th Ave.; and the other at 1-55 Borden Ave.

The building located at 1-50 50th Avenue will be a 37-story complex comprised of 619 permanently affordable units, 13,750 square feet of retail space, and a parking garage with approximately 220 spaces.

The 1-55 Borden Ave. building will be 32-stories high comprised of 306 permanently affordable units and approximately 3,000 square feet of retail space.

Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer told members of the Hunters Point Civic Association last night that some of the Hunters Point South lottery winners had been notified.

He said that he had received a call from a lottery winner earlier this week who said that she had been called in for an interview.

The notification period is expected to last for a number of months.

I don’t think getting interviewed necessary means you “Won”. They usually interview a lot more people then the apartments that are available, so they don’t have to do it when some people turn them down. I’ve heard they interview as many as 20 times the amount of people as the amount of apartments available!! I also got interviewed, but am not naive enough to think this means anything.


I got a call from their rental office to send over more of my info. Does that mean I won? Or I just might qualify?
