250 West-50th-Street-NYC

A new affordable housing lottery has opened at 250 W. 50th St. This Midtown West housing lottery will offer 28 apartments in an Avalon community high-rise. Broadway junkies will rejoice, as this property is right in the middle of the theater district.

The property oozes with all the luxuries one would expect in a full-service, doorman building, including a fitness center, residents’ lounge, outdoor terrace, parking, and laundry. There’s also an indoor pool  so residents can comfortably swim laps no matter what the temperature is outside. The lower level of the property even has Food Emporium, so there’s no need to even leave the block to get groceries. Although who needs to grocery shop when there’s tons of restaurant options mere blocks away in Hell’s Kitchen? While the busy location may be over the top for some, living near Times Square certainly makes getting around the city a cinch with quick access to a multitude of trains.

How to Apply for the Midtown West Housing Lottery

The designated affordable units in this property are available to applicants earning 130 percent of the area median income, or households earning between $73, 303 and $135,590 annually. Rents range from $2,138 per month for studios to $2,993 for 2-bedroom apartments, varying with household size and income.
