The city is launching a housing lottery for affordable units at Archer Green, a 23-story mixed-use apartment complex at 92-23 168 Street in Jamaica.

The lottery was first reported by New York YIMBY, a website catering to the residential and commercial real estate industry in the metropolitan area.

Information on the lottery and the portal for applications can be found online at the website for NYC Housing Connect at

The complex is located just south of Jamaica Avenue, across the street from Home Depot. It is within walking distance of the Queens Central Public Library, the NYPD’s 103rd Precinct, the Jamaica Avenue shopping corridor and the E and F subway lines.

YIMBY reports that there will be 387 units, with 351 for residents of various income levels between $20,160 and $183,300. Three of the studio apartments will be offered for as little as $524 per month, with rents gradually increasing to coincide with their size and renter’s income.
