Two units are up for grabs in another Astoria affordable housing lottery — with the monthly rents going for $1,200 and $1,450 respectively.
The apartments are contained within a newly-constructed 3-story, six-unit building at 20-52 49th St., between 20th and 21st Avenues.
The two units differ in pricing with the one-bedroom unit costing $1,200 per month and the two-bedroom priced at $1,450 per month.
The one-bedroom unit is available for one or two occupants. With one occupant, the resident must have an annual household income of $41,143 – $89,640 to be eligible. With two occupants, the combined income must be between $41,143 – $102,480.
The two-bedroom unit is available for two to four occupants. The minimum annual household income permitted is $49,715. The maximum for two occupants is $102,480; for three people it is $115,230; and four people it is $128,040.
The building is close to the Q19, Q100, and Q101 bus stops as well as the N, W, and M trains.
Tenants will be responsible for paying gas, gas heat, and electricity.
The deadline to apply for the lottery is Aug. 13. While the apartments will be awarded to eligible applicants on a lottery basis, some preference will be given to those with mobility, vision or hearing disabilities.
