An expansive, new waterfront development in Astoria is set for its first residents, including the lucky winners of an affordable housing lottery.

Eighty-one premium apartments at the new 10 Halletts Point development are available to eligible applicants who earn at 60 percent of the area median income. Those salary ranges are $34,355 to $40,080 for a single person and up to $66,420 for a household of six people.

Halletts Point is the Durst Organization’s first community development outside of Manhattan, but since this waterfront area is just across the East River, Manhattan is in full view.

Halletts Point consists of a total of over 400 total residential units across seven buildings, plus 25,000 square feet of amenities including indoor and outdoor recreational and open space. And with shuttle service to nearby transportation options, including the ferry and subways, this new development will draw attention from NYC renters.
