Affordable Tower Near Yankee Stadium Tops Out, Launches Housing Lottery
Monday, July 31, 2017
https://www.cityrealty.com/nyc/marke...-lottery/12743

Quote:
Developer, M. Melnik & Co. began construction on 810 River Avenue back in
2015. Now, the 100% affordable Bronx rental tower has topped out, and
applications for the housing lottery are currently being accepted. The tower, across the street from the former site of Yankee Stadium, will
feature 133 units. Prices range from $538 per month studios to $2,113 per
month three-bedrooms; the lottery is open to New Yorkers earning up to 40,
60, 90 and 130 percent of the area median income (See the chart below for
detailed pricing).The 17-story, mixed income tower is a first of its kind for the 161st
Street neighborhood. After the creation of a new Yankees Stadium in 2009,
the city approved a rezoning of the district that now allows for
large-scale mixed-use development in the area and waterfront. With the 4, B
and D trains at the 161st Street station just a block away, commuting to
and from the area is convenient to Manhattan and other parts of the Bronx.

It must have nice views to the ball park, and to Manhattan. Too bad I don't qualify.

Edit: Actually, looking closer at the picture, it looks like the train runs right near it. I can only imagine the noise. I grew up with my bedroom window right next to train tracks and it was annoying to raise the volume on your TV when the stupid train passed by every other ten minutes back and forth during rush hour.

The train is literally right outside the window.

You would get a view of the huge park built across from Yankee Stadium, and a view of the Stadium itself (not that it's much to look at from the outside).. but you'd also have the view of above-ground train line right outside your window.

I guess it would be OK on upper floors.

I'm sorry but that view would be amazing.

You would be able to watch every game from your window. Would be a dream for a yankee fan, would get old real quick for everyone else.

This is an interesting one because it caters to almost every income level for a single. The only people losing out are below $20,675, between $26,721-$31,542, and those making $86,841 or more. Such a wide variety. It's covering that often forgotten $41,000 - $46,000 range as well.

Good luck to everyone who applies. This is one of the more balanced lotteries I've seen in a while. They should stick to this type of formula.

I just saw that - 130 AMI which is not bad. Only I don't know why stick a few middle income people with more lower income people in the Bronx. Not sure why Pruitt Igoe and Cabrini Green come to mind.
