Essex Crossing Launches Affordable Housing Lottery at ‘The Artisan’ Tower
Time to throw in your lot with rest of them. Indeed, the affordable housing lottery just began for the next-to-launch residential development at Essex Crossing. The Artisan.
A total of 121 affordable apartments are up for grabs here at 180 Broome (aka Site 4). To qualify, households must earn between forty percent and one hundred sixty five percent of area median income. Residents of Community Board 3 receive a preference for fifty percent of these units; former Site Tenants of the Seward Park Extension Urban Renewal Area receive an additional priority.
The lottery is open for 60 days, until April 7.
Designed by Handel Architects, the 25-story tower contains 263 apartments, 121 of which are earmarked affordable. Amenities include a lobby attendant, on-site superintendent, terraces, fitness room, children’s playroom, bicycle storage, and resident lounge. It also connects to the Market Line on the basement level.
If the past is any indication, the number of applicants will balloon pretty quickly. Good luck.
