[SIZE=3]Yup, that is about 10% of the total population. It didnít make sense to me at first so I triedto read the Mitchell Lama guidelines. Iread it a while ago, but recall something about an efficiency ratio. Basically, if there is only 10% of one bedroomavailable then the apartment can be available to a 1 person applicant. I am not an expert at theMitchell Lama rules so feel free to do your own research. [/SIZE]

Are we sure that we are not confusing the studios (one room) with the one bedroom apartments then? The rule is that if less than 10% of the apartments are studios, then a single person can go for a one-bedroom apartment (usually 3-3.5 rooms).

Like i said, I am not a Mitchell Lama rule expert so if you have better info please share. Regardless of what the rule is, the woman did tell me it was only 1, one bedroom per floor.

I believe you on the # of one bedrooms there.

The 10% rule reads:
Quote:
A single person may occupy a one-bedroom apartment if the development has less than ten percent (10%) efficiency apartments.
It's on page 8 of the Mitchell Lama rules here: http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/hpd/downl...lama-rules.pdf

The Chance of winning a lottery jackpot equals to moving in to the one-room apartment. Lol I have to live long enough to get the apartment. Lol

Hello Everyone,
The next time I call I'll try to ask! Its something I am dying to know. I've searched everywhere and can't seem to be able to find the break down. There's no a lot of information about Masaryk Towers out there.
