WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — Thirteen affordable housing apartments — with rents starting as low as $868 a month — are now up for grabs.
The applications for the 10-story building, located on 607 W. 161 St., opened late July. The building, equipped with a 24-hour video-monitored lobby, bicycle storage and a fitness center, will have a total of 62 apartments.
Sutton Management, the representative for the developer, appeared before Community Board 12 last year seeking a tax break to add the 13 units.
