Eligible applicants must earn between $87,223 and $95,030 for a single person application, and up to $146,510 for a 5-person household. Rental rates are $2,544 for the four 1-bedroom units and $3,050 for the five 2-bedroom units. Income eligibility is in the chart below.
The 6-story building contains a total of 30 units, including some 3 bedrooms, which are not part of this lottery offering and which rent at a market rate of $4,150 in a net-effective lease. Market rates for the 1-bedroom units — some of which include a terrace or balcony — are $2,975 on a net-effective lease, so you can see the rent difference between the market-rate apartments and those being offered via this 216 Freeman St. lottery.
