Apply for New “Affordable” Housing in Tremont

Located at 4215 Park Avenue and sitting right next to the Tremont Metro North Station is a new “affordable” housing development which you can now apply for.

Tremont Renaissance, as the 255 unit development is called, is open to residents making 60-120% of the Area Median Income which ranges from $30,069 for a single-family household to $145,200 for a 6-person household.

It should be noted that the average single-family household in Community Board 6 makes $11,676 which is almost 3x less than the required minimum to even qualify for these units which always leaves one asking, “who is this for really?”

In fact, this development is not affordable to the typical family in the area whether they’re a single family or a 6 person household.

The development features 24 hour security, a “sun promenade” (it’s a friggin roof deck, stop it lol), a computer room, a courtyard, a residents’ lounge, a courtyard, bicycle storage room, children’s play area, on-site laundry, and parking. Some of these amenities like bike storage and residents lounge are available for an extra, undisclosed fee.
