The 144 brand-new apartments at 241 West 28th St. in Chelsea are now accepting applications for a housing lottery. Income requirements range from $48,138 to $187,330 for eligible applicants. A studio apartment starts at $1,329 per month.
Studios, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments, as well as solitary three-bedroom apartments, are all on the market.
Income eligibility standards are set between 70 and 130 percent of the AMI. What determines AMI is the number of people in a household. The current New York City AMI for a couple is $106,800.
Two streets south of Madison Square Garden, the pet-friendly building is also close to Chelsea Park and the High Line.
It has a media room, a gym, a pool, and a washing station for pets. There is a rooftop deck and secure space for bicycles. The pool, storage, and rooftop areas can be used for an additional cost.
All of the units are equipped with washers/dryers and dishwashers. Rent covers gas for cooking and water/heat/air conditioning; tenants are responsible for electricity.
If you need to go on the 1 or 2 trains, the closest stop is 28th Street.
There will be a preference given to locals for 50% of the rent-stabilized units. In addition, NYC workers will be granted first dibs on 5% of the residences.
In addition, a small number of the flats are designed for people with special sensory requirements, such as those with limited mobility, eyesight, or hearing.
No late applications will be considered after the March 27th postmark deadline.

Being awarded a rent-stabilized dwelling might completely alter one’s living situation: Long-term stability in housing costs is ensured for New York City tenants through a cap on rent increases and automatic lease renewals.
