There are 13 two-bedroom apartments available for tenants with incomes of $73,098 to 115,280. The rent for these apartments is $2,002.
The Grand Concourse neighborhood is known for its elegant Tudor, Beaux Arts, and Art Deco-style apartment complexes. Yankee Stadium is nearby and as are several parks. The building is close to 138 St-Grand Concourse subway station, where you can catch the 4, 5, and 6 trains.
The building is pet friendly and has bike storage lockers and electric car charging stations. Apartments have energy-efficient appliances. The developers have set aside 50 percent of the affordable apartments for those who live in the community. There is also a 5 percent preference for NYC employees.
Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than August 24th.
