Applications opened today for the affordable rentals at 331 East Houston, a new luxury 80/20 building on the Lower East Side. Per the listing on NYC Housing Connect, available affordable units include five $847/month studios, eight $909/month one-bedrooms, and three $1,101/month two-bedrooms, for renters with household incomes between $30,412 and $51,780, depending on apartment and family size.
No available photos of the interiors as of yet, but the developer did release renderings of the building's common spaces last fall (including a roof deck that seems to be screening Die Hard):
It would seem that the building's subsidized renters will have access to all the building's amenities, including the lounge, library, and garden, though use of the building's gym, roof deck, and bike storage comes with additional fees. Preference for half the apartments will go to current residents of the Lower East Side's Community Board 3 (its exact boundaries can be found here).
The turnaround time is relatively tight, with applications due by June 29th. Brush up on our application tips here if you're interested, and apply online via the NYC Housing Connect Website, or request a hard copy application by sending a self-addressed envelope to East Houston Street Apartments, c/o Housing Partnership Development Corporation, 242 West 36th Street, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10018.
