It's not a deluge, but every affordable housing option counts in this city: 9 apartments in the Belmont neighborhood of the Bronx, and only a block from the Bronx Zoo, are going on the market. The project looks to be targeting moderate-income buyers; according to YIMBY, it's expected to have 41 units and is being developed by the Stagg Group.  

Per the listing posted on NYC Housing Connect, the apartments hitting the market right now are a mix of one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms ranging from $1348/month (for one-bedrooms) to $1,521/month (for two-bedrooms) for renters with annual household incomes between $46,218 (for a single person) and $72,480 (for a family of four); the rents depend on apartment and household size:


As usual, half of these apartments will be set aside for current neighborhood residents, which in this case means those who live in the Bronx's Community Board 6.
