Apply for a chance to rent a $613 studio near Hudson Yards

The city is now taking applications for 90 below-market rate apartments in Hell's Kitchen, near the Hudson Yards mega-development, through the city's housing lottery. The apartments are part of 555 10th Ave., a 52-story, 600-unit building at West 41st Street, built by the developer Extell. The units going up for grabs are set aside for people making $23,000-$27,000 a year, and $69,000-$92,000. For the former group, studios start at $613, and for the latter, $1,949. One, two, and three bedrooms are also available.

The city opened another version of the lottery for the building's 120 so-called affordable units last year. The new lottery is happening because the developer switched tax break programs, according to a Department of Housing Preservation and Development spokesman. In the meantime some of the apartments were allocated through the initial lottery process. There was a similar lottery do-over at a Downtown Brooklyn building last week. 


The 480 or so remaining apartments at 555 10th are set to be rented at market rates.

Here is more information on the income levels and rents for the below-market units:
