Lottery Now Open for Brand New Affordable Housing Apartments in Bedford Park

BEDFORD PARK—Applications are now being accepted for over 100 brand new construction affordable apartments in the Bedford Park neighborhood of The Bronx with rents as low as $1,045 a month for two-bedroom units.

Bronxview Apartments, located at 2885 Marion Avenue, is a 114 unit, 8 story mixed-income residential development comprised of one, two, and three bedroom apartments.

Rents start as low as $1,045 for two-bedroom apartment and $1,200 for a three bedroom for those making 50% of the area median income and higher depending on income.

As far as amenities go, Bronxview doesn’t appear to have any besides an advertised shared laundry room which makes this particular affordable housing development kind of lacking in this area compared to other comprable new construction in the area.

But what it lacks in on site amenities, it more than makes up for what’s available within walking distance.

The site is located within a short walk to Lehman College along with its Center for Performing Arts, Fordham University, the New York Botanical Garden, Mosholu Parkway, Bronx River Park and Forest, Van Cortlandt Park, and many others.

Bronxview is also located within several blocks of the Botanical Garden Metro North Station, the B and D subway at Bedford Park Boulevard and the 4 train a few blocks over on the same street not to mention several bus routes that run right by.

Qualifying applicants must make 50, 60, 90, or 110% of the area median income which ranges from $39,018 to $155,100 a year depending on which bracket you land on and household size.

5% of units are set aside for applicants with mobility issues and 2% for those with visual or hearing impairments.

50% of the units are reserved for those who live within Bronx Community Board 7 and 5% for those who work for New York City.

Application deadline is April 20, 2021 and you can apply online or request an application by mail, by sending a self-addressed envelope to:

2751 Grand Concourse C/O Fordham Bedford
Bronx, NY 10468

As per Housing Connect guidelines, do NOT apply online and also send in an application. Only apply ONCE per lottery or you may be disqualified for duplicate entries.
