The city’s Housing Development Corporation is now accepting applications for apartments in a development at 33 West End Avenue at 61st Street. The 25-story building has both market-rate and income-restricted apartments.
The notice from HDC says that the city is trying to fill vacancies and add to the waiting list at the building. The apartments are meant for middle-income tenants, or people making 165% of the area median income. Amenities include a fitness center and a 24/7 “concierge”.
This building’s affordable apartments have historically been targeted at seniors, though the application does not mention age requirements. The household size is restricted to one or two people, however, indicating that it isn’t meant for families with two adults and children.
Given the income limits, one Upper West Sider who sent the notice around asked “Is this affordable?”
Clarification: A resident tells us there are not separate entrances for income-restricted units, so we’ve removed that reference.
