Applications opened today for a long-awaited middle-income rental building in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, with apartments starting at $1,909 a month,
according to a new listing on NYC Housing Connect.
The building at 382 Lefferts Avenue was originally envisioned as a high-priced condo building, but the project stalled during the recession,
and as Crain's reported in 2011, the developers opted into a city program to convert the building into 46 moderate- and middle-income rentals. And indeed, these apartments aren't as cheap as the usual fare you find in NYC's affordable housing lotteries: Studios are going for $1,909/month; one-bedrooms, $2,047/month; and two-bedrooms, $2,465/month. Renters need to have incomes ranging from $67,406 to $138,080, depending on household and apartment size. ( A full list of availabilities and income requirements can be found here.) The building also has a fitness center and "party rooms," though additional fees apply.
