Some of the very lucky winners of the lottery for affordable units in the Hunter’s Point South development have been notified by the city’s department of Housing Preservation and Development according to the LIC Post. Those who have been notified are being brought in for interviews.
The city began accepting applications for the 924 affordable apartments in October. More than 92,000 people submitted applications for the units. The 37-story building at 1-50 50th Avenue will have 619 affordable units and 1-55 Borden Avenue, a 32 story tower, will have 306 affordable units. Studios for the lowest income tenants are $494 a month. The most expensive income-restricted units are three-bedroom apartments for $4,346 a month.
The agency expects to continue to interview those placed high on the list over the course of the next few months until all of the units are filled.
