People with CB preference for this building have reason to be happy, in my opinion.

Here's why:

This is my community board, and there is a CB preference for this development. Based on what my friend went through in 2015 for a building in our CB, this is what I came to realize:

1) This is a pretty affluent CB overall. There are some NYCHA buildings, but they're small. There are no large NYCHA developments in this CB that I know of. The CB lacks low-income housing in general. So there will not be a large pool of lower income folks who will be applying for this building.

You will basically be competing against new grads making bupkis in their interesting but low-paid jobs as stage managers for an Off Broadway theater and living with Mom and Dad in Gramercy Park.

It seems to me that it's going to be pretty difficult for the developer to find enough qualified people for the CB allotment.

2) This is a large lottery, with 109 units, most of them in the 40% and 60% bands. Those will be particularly tough to fill.

3) This CB has had several 80/20 developments recently. A couple have been quite large, such as American Copper and 225 East 39th St. Those may have already depleted the ranks of lower income residents who qualify.

If you lack CB preference but have a relatively low log number, don't despair. Your turn will come.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out! Good luck to all!

Hi all,

We are now in mid October, do you guys have any idea when the interview emails will be sent out, if not already ?

I'm 1xxx no CB preference. And I have to leave my apt soon.. wouldn't want to be caught up in a new lease if I can strike that lottery...

Thanks for any update.
