Housing lottery applications are open for 15 rent-stabilized apartments at a new development in the Concourse Village section of the Bronx. New Yorkers who earn $113,726 to $227,630 are eligible to apply, depending on the size of the household. Rents start at $3,317 for a one-bedroom.

The smoke-free building at 1140 Grant Ave. has security cameras, intercom devices, and offers residents an online leasing, rent payment, and maintenance request platform. It’s located near the 167th Street subway station with service to the B and D lines.

Designed by Rise Architecture, the five-story building between East 166th Street and McClellan Street sits a few blocks from the Bronx Museum of the Arts. The development replaced a brick multifamily building, and wrapped exterior construction last year, according to city records.

The apartments are set aside for New Yorkers earning 130 percent of the area median income (AMI)—a metric that depends on how many people you live with. Currently the AMI for New York City is $113,000 for a two-person household. The apartments available include one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. 

There are eight three-bedroom apartments available for households earning from $156,446 to $227,630. The rent for these apartments is $4,563. 

Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than April 1st.

If you’re interested and think you might qualify for one of these apartments, you can create a profile and apply online via NYC Housing Connect. For details on this particular lottery, click here. Don’t apply more than once, or you could be disqualified.

Winning a rent-stabilized apartment can be life changing: Rent increases are capped and lease renewals are automatic, providing long-term stability for NYC renters. Need more information on how the housing lottery works? Check out “6 steps for applying to NYC's affordable housing lottery.”
