Applications are being accepted now through April 6 for affordable apartments in a newly renovated building, Randolph Houses North, which was once part of the Authority’s Randolph Houses development.
Through a partnership of NYCHA, the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development, the NYC Housing Development Corporation, Trinity Financial, West Harlem Group Assistance, Red Stone Equity Partners, and BNY Mellon, $42 million was invested to rehabilitate and combine 14 historic buildings into one building. The 14 buildings dated back to the 1890s and were acquired by NYCHA in the 1970s. The new apartments will be ready to move into this July.
NYCHA residents (including former Randolph Houses residents), NYCHA Section 8 voucher holders, and applicants on NYCHA’s waitlist will receive preference for 25 percent of the Harlem building’s 106 affordable apartments. To apply, visit the NYC Housing Connect lottery system at www.nyc.gov/housingconnect. Eight additional apartments are reserved for NYCHA Section 8 voucher holders.
The apartments, with a maximum rent of $1,289 per month, are available to families earning at or below 60 percent of the area median income (that is, household income less than $57,240 for a family of four).
Amenities include a live-in superintendent, 24-hour monitored security, storage cages and bike storage, outdoor recreational space, and a 3,000-square-foot community space that includes a library, computer rooms, and laundry.
