Nearly 50 units in a newly-constructed building in Jackson Heights are up for grabs through the New York City affordable housing lottery.
Altogether, 47 apartments — a mix of studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units — are available for New Yorkers who make between $38,435 and $183,300 a year.
The 47 apartments are located within the Roosevelt Parc, a six-story mixed-use development located at 37-46 72nd St. and rent between $1,121 and $3,283 a month. The building has 154 units in total — with the remaining 107 apartments listed at market price.
Residents must make 130 percent of the area median income to be eligible for the lottery.
There are 15 studio-units available for $1,121 a month to households of one to two people who make between $38,435 and $118,300 combined annually.
Another 19 one-bedroom units are available for $1,962 a month to households of one to three people who make between $67,269 and $133,120 combined annually.
