The NYC Department of Housing and Preservation is leasing six affordable apartments at 40-07 73rd Street, the condo-turned-rental building now known as The Roosevelt. Citi Habitats listed market rate rentals in October with convertible two bedrooms starting at $2,400 a month and three bedrooms starting at $3,600. The city’s now offering one and two bedrooms priced between $860 and $1,171 a month. You can enter the lottery at the NYC Housing Connect website no later than February 25th, 2014. Current and eligible residents of Queens Community Board 4 receive preference for 50 percent of the units. We’ve heard from a Citi Habitats broker that the leasing of market rate rentals is going well.
