RELATED sent me an application yesterday for 3 of their buildings that they are opening their waiting lists on. Seems one application works for all 3 buildings.

They are only for studio apartments at $565 rent (Income limit: $19,965 to $24,200)

The buildings are THE WESTMINSTER in Chelsea.
ONE UNION SQUARE (I'd love that location, and the building is beautiful.)
MIMA in Midtown.

Applications must be postmarked by May 31, 2015.

Good luck to all who try and who qualify with that narrow income window.

Nor do I love RELATED, they are destroying my neighborhood by putting up a high rise in one of only two parks. Worse, they are doing it with SCAB labor.

I just happen to be on their mailing list from long, long, LONG ago when 80/20 was first conceived, and I pass on the info to others who might be able to use it. I can't.
I also think they may be the major source of 80/20 affordables in Manhattan.


To get an application, try 646.961.4331

I hate them too. After a three month wait, they just put me on a waiting list for Hunter's Point. They dodged my phone calls as well before I found out (and received the letter). For some reason, I feel they are treating the "low income" families a bit harsh and "different" even though it's affordable housing. I will call to get an application but I will remain pessimistic; I am bit reluctant to deal with them again. Thanks, Kefir, for the number.

Oh, I agree. You've got to come to them, groveling hat in hand with a humble demeanor, grateful for their kindly beneficence. But once IN you have the hammer of New York law on your side. So some dutiful asss-kissing might pay dividends. "Yes, M'Lord."

Hey, they are no better nor worse than all the rest of the slimy landlords in this City, just bigger and maybe even a little more honest than most. But landlords are, ultimately, $$$landlords.$$$

I really wish there were a few more "middle-income" lotteries. While I'm grateful that my days of $24k are loooong behind me, it doesn't mean that I don't want an opportunity to get an affordable apartment.

Yep, they are scarce as hens' teeth...but an unassailable fact is that Mr. $24K needs affordable far more than even Joe Median at $50K and far, far more than Madame Middle Class at whatever nebulous amount that is defined to be (John McCain says $400,000.)

What NYC needs to lower rents for market renters is a nice plague that quickly wipes out about a million families and 50,000 landlords.

Related's buldings are the cats meow. They have exquisite design, and prime locations. Congrats.
