The 4-story building features 9,693 sq. ft. of residential space across 13 units divided among studios, 1- and 2-bedroom units.  The building replaces a three-story, unattached single-family home. Chaim Rossenwasser purchased the structure from Elvira Maynard in June 2017 for $1.3 million, more than 10 times what she and Elizabeth Maynard paid for the property in 1987.

The affordable units are reserved for applicants earning 130% of the area median income (AMI).  Annual household income requirements range from $68,538 – $108,550 for single and double occupancy in the one available studio. Singles, couples and households of three looking for the lone 1-bedroom need to make between $71,966 – $122,070. Households with two to five people cand choose from two 2-bedroom apartments but must earn from $84,858 to $146,510.

Applicants can expect a bike room, gym and game room, communal lounge, card-based laundry center and roof access. Units will feature stainless steel appliances and stone countertops. There are three studios, six 1-bedroom apartments and four 2-bedroom apartments at the building.

New York City residents have first preference to apply for the affordable units, but there is no district component so immediate neighbors in Community Board 9 will not get preference. A percentage of units will be set aside for applicants with mobility (5%) and vision/hearing (2%) disabilities.

The deadline for applications is Monday, April 1. Click here to apply.
