Another slate of affordable units within Essex Crossing is now up for grabs. This time around it’s for apartments inside the fourteen-story senior building at 175 Delancey Street (aka Site 6). The housing lottery officially went on line yesterday and available to those who meet the eligibility requirements. This is the second such lottery to go live in the last month.

There are 99 units available (100% affordable) to “individuals or households must have at least one member who is 55 years of age or older at the time the application is submitted,” according to the press release. As is the case with all housing within Essex Crossing, priority is first given to former site tenants and those currently living in Community Board 3.

As previously reported, the building itself serves a multi-purpose function. NYU Langone will open a 55,000 square-foot outpatient hospital here at a cost of $32.9 million; and Grand Street Settlement will operate the senior center, community facility, and cafe.
