Affordable housing is on a roll in the Bronx.

The city’s Housing Connect program has announced the rental application period for 133 newly constructed apartments at 810 River Ave., two blocks off the Grand Concourse in the Bronx.  

The application window opened just days after Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. announced the designation of $7 million in capital funds for 10 housing developments, which will create more than 1,500 new affordable units across the borough.

The 810 River development, located across the street from Heritage Field, and within blocks of Franz Sigel and Joyce Kilmer parks, is served by the 4 subway line (161 Street-Yankee Stadium).

The smoke-free building will feature outdoor public space, a gym, media center, laundry room and parking lot (tenant pays). Residents of the Bronx Community Board 4 and municipal employees will receive preference for 55 percent of the units, and 7 percent of the units will be allocated for applicants with mobility and vision/hearing disabilities.

The one- two- and three-bedroom units are available to renters at various levels of Area Median Income (See below for more information on both income requirements and available units; click to enlarge).


Apply by creating a profile online via NYC Housing Connect , or request a paper application by mailing a self-addressed envelope to 810 River, c/o The Wavecrest Management Team, 87-14 116th Street, Richmond Hill, NY 11418.

(Don’t apply more than once, or you could be disqualified.)

Applications are due before midnight, Sept. 29, 2017.
