Five units are up for grabs in a new Astoria affordable housing lottery–each with a monthly rent of $2,320.
The units, all one-bedroom apartments, are located inside the newly constructed 25-40 31st Street Apartments.
The seven-story building, which consists of 16 units in total, is outfitted with several amenities, available at additional costs, including a roof deck recreation area, parking, a bike room, and a laundry room.
The building is located just a block away from the N and W trains at the Astoria Boulevard station.
The affordable units are priced at $2,320 per month, with eligible households ranging from one to three people in size. Individuals must have an income between $79,543 and $97,110. Households of two can have a combined income up to $111,020, and households of three may make up to $124,930.
Tenants will be responsible for paying electricity. The building’s owner will pay for gas and hot water.
The deadline to apply for the lottery is June 4. While the apartments will be given out on a lottery basis to eligible applicants, some preference will be given to those with mobility, vision or hearing disabilities.
