The city Department of Housing and Preservation is accepting applications for what it has deemed an affordable housing lottery at 86-15 Rockaway Boulevard, a four-story residential building in Ozone Park.
The 13,900-square-foot development designed by Lu Ning Architecture contains 20 units — six of which are available on NYC Housing Connect for residents at 130 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $54,858 to $159,640 per household.
The offerings include one studio apartment with a $1,600 monthly rent for incomes ranging from $54,858 to $118,300, and five two-bedrooms with a $2,000 monthly rent for incomes ranging from $68,572 to $159,640.
Prospective renters must meet income and household size requirements to apply for these apartments. Applications must be submitted online or postmarked no later than March 23.
The building is receiving a tax exemption through HPD’s 421a Tax Incentive program. The pet-friendly apartments will feature hardwood floors, energy-efficient appliances and patios or balconies. Amenities include garages, a virtual doorman, storage, a bike room, a recreation room, a central laundry room and community events and classes.
The owner of the property filed permits for the four-story residential building in 2018 and Department of Buildings records indicate that construction lasted from 2019 through at least August of 2020.
