This past year, we've been keeping tabs on Alphabet Plaza, the 12-story mixed-used apartment building going up at East Houston and Avenue D.
In total, the building will include 135 apartments — with 30 of them designated as affordable units. Yesterday, The Lo-Down reported that the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development has shared information about the upcoming lottery for those units.
Per The Lo-Down:
Under NYC’s affordable housing program, studios will rent for $847; one bedrooms are priced at $909; 2-bedroom units are $1101. Applicants need to meet income requirements (annual household earnings ranging from $30,000 to nearly $60,000 for the largest units). Residents of Community District 3 (including the Lower East Side and Chinatown) will be given preference for the apartments.
Go here to find details about how to apply. Feb. 18 is the deadline.
The building amenities include 24-hour doorman, valet services (laundry drop-off and pick-up), fitness center, residents lounge, landscaped roof decks with BBQ area and bike storage.
