Three new apartments are up for grabs in Astoria through the city’s affordable housing lottery, but you must make at least $73,715 to qualify.
Two one-bedroom and one two-bedroom units are available through the lottery inside a newly-constructed building at 25-34 Steinway St.
Monthly rent for the one bedrooms costs $2,150 each and monthly rent for the two-bedroom costs $2,849.
The one-bedroom units are open to households of one to three people who make between $73,715 and $124,930 combined annually. The two-bedroom unit is open to households of two to five people who make between $97,680 and $149,890 combined annually.
A full breakdown of the income requirements to enter the housing lottery is below.
The building has a roof-deck, a laundry room and storage units available.
Nearby transit includes the N, W, and M trains and the Q101, Q19 and Q18 buses.
Tenants are responsible for electricity bills, including heating, while the landlord pays for hot water and cooking gas.
While the units are given out to eligible applicants through a lottery, some preference is given to applicants with vision, mobility and hearing disabilities.
