An affordable housing lottery at 294 E. 162nd St. in the Concourse section of the Bronx was just announced for 88 newly constructed apartments. If you’re a baseball fan, it will be even more exciting: The new rental building is located just five blocks from Yankee Stadium.
Apartments range from studios to 3-bedrooms for two sets of area median income ranges: those who make 60 percent of the area median income and those who make 80 percent. For those who make 60 percent of the AMI, salaries range from $31,509 for one person to $66,420 for a household of up to six people. For those in the 80 percent bracket, salary requirements go from $37,817 for one person to $88,560 for up to six people. See more details in the chart below.
Amenities of the new building include a 24-hour attended lobby, onsite resident manager, landscaped community courtyard, fitness room, community and computer rooms, and onsite laundry facility.
