Applicants who live in Queens Community Board 12, which includes Jamaica, St. Albans, Hollis, South Ozone Park and Springfield Gardens, will get a preference for half of the units.

The developer is also currently constructing a 53-unit, eight-story building nearby called the Horizon at Locust Manor, which will include some Section 8 units, according to the company's website.
The lottery opened on June 14 and the deadline to apply is Aug. 14. Those interested can apply by mail or online through the city’s Housing Connect system.
