MOTT HAVEN—Applications are now being accepted for brand new affordable apartments in Mott Haven via New York City’s housing lottery.
Located at 345 St Ann’s Avenue at E 142nd Street, Park Haven is a 10 story 178 unit brand new construction development for extremely low and low income residents with deep affordability for qualifying households making 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI).
In a rapidly gentrifying Mott Haven, this translates into rents that are not only truly affordable but rents that are well below the area median which are rare to find.
Beginning at the 30% AMI, this translates to residents making $14,915 to $23,880 a year can qualify for a studio renting for only $362 a month.
Monthly rents begin at $465 for a 1 bedroom, $569 for a 2 bedroom, and $650 for a 3 bedroom for those making 30% of the AMI which ranges from $18,789 to $42,300 depending on household size with rents increasing for those making 40, 50, 60, 70, and 80% of the AMI.
5% of units are set aside for applicants with mobility issues and 2% for those with visual or hearing impairments.
50% of units are set aside for applicants who live within Bronx Community Board 1 (you can enter your address here to see which community board you live in) and 5% of units are set aside for New York City employees.
Amenities include Laundry Room, Fitness Center, Community Room, Landscaped Terrace, LVT Floors, Security Cameras, Electric appliances, and Granite countertops with backsplash.
For outdoor space, besides the private exterior areas at Park Haven, you have St Mary’s Park just up the block which is currently undergoing a $30+ million renovation.
Interested applicants should apply online here or you can request an application by mail by sending a self-addressed envelope to:
PARK HAVEN, P.O. BOX 316
BRONX, NY 10470
Just a reminder that you should ONLY apply once either by mail OR online and NOT both. Applying more than once per lottery may disqualify you.
Application deadline is April 26, 2021.
