Soon thousands of people will learn if they missed out on one of the city’s top housing opportunities.
But for those who haven’t signed up yet, there is less than one week remaining to apply for the lottery for affordable housing at the Hunter’s Point South buildings.
The 60-day period for accepting applications will end on Monday, Dec. 15, for the two new buildings on the Long Island City waterfront — 32-story Hunter’s Point South Crossing and 37-story Hunter’s Point South Commons.
Just two weeks after the lottery application process kicked off in October about 25,000 hopeful residents had signed up to obtain the 925 units, according to published reports.
Those still looking to apply should do so through the city’s Housing Connect website or by submitting a paper application. After the application process closes, the lottery will begin and selected applicants will be notified early next year.
The buildings will reserve 50 percent of the apartments for people living within Community Board 2, 7 percent for those with mobility or hearing disabilities or those who are visually impaired, and 5 percent for city employees.
There are 186 units, or about 20 percent, for low-income individuals and families, and 738 apartments are available for moderate- and middle-income tenants.
Studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will be available for all income levels. Low-income rental prices start from $494 for a studio and max out at $959 per month for a three-bedroom, while eligible incomes range from about $19,000 to approximately $49,000 annually. Rents for middle and moderate-income units range from $1,561 to $4,346 per month for household incomes of $55,200 to $224,020 annually.
The buildings feature many amenities, including an urban farm, outdoor terraces, fitness facilities, tech centers, bike storage, party rooms, laundry rooms and a parking garage. Both buildings will have 24-hour lobby attendants.
