Essex Crossing Announces Lottery for Site 8 Senior Housing

Posted on: June 20th, 2019 at 5:03 am by

Another Essex Crossing development is poised to debut. The housing lottery for the senior apartments at Site 8 is now live.

There are a total of 92 affordable studio units up for grabs in the eight-story construction. To qualify, senior households (age 62+) must earn between zero and sixty percent of Area Median Income. Residents living in Community Board 3 receive preference for fifty percent of the housing stock, with an additional priority granted to former SPURA site tenants displaced in the 1960s.

Application portal is here.

Designed by Beyer Blinder Belle, the eight-story mixed-use tower at 140 Essex is almost two years under construction, and sits atop the ashes of a former Essex Street Market building. Residents will have access to a second-floor residential terrace, laundry room, and eighth-floor library. It’s expected to debut later this year.

There is also 9,645 square-feet of ground-level retail space for the taking. The Magician bar is planning to occupy some of that footprint as part of its latest expansion plan.

To learn more about the Site 8 housing lottery, head to the info session next Wednesday (June 26) at 175 Delancey Street, 6:30-8:00pm.
