For most New Yorkers, the idea of living in Soho seems like a distant fantasy–one that can only be realized if you were to become the next Kelly Ripa, Justin Timberlake or David Bowie (RIP). Yet in Hudson Square, the neighborhood just west of Soho that borders the river, your downtown dream could become a reality. (And considering Dominique Ansel Bakery's near proximity, what a dream it is.) DNAInfo reports that starting next month, 70 Charlton, a new 22-story luxury apartment building that is still under construction, will open an affordable housing lottery for 29 units.
The available units range in size and price from 532-square-foot studios ($833 per month) to 1,503-square-foot three-bedrooms ($1,082 per month). The spots are only available to people within a certain annual salary range: $36,300 for a single person and up to $51,780 for a family of four. The building’s other 92 luxury units are market-rate co-ops that range in price from $1,545,000 to $7,135,000. The new structure’s luxury amenities include a pool, sauna and gym–the affordable housing tenants can use the building's amenities for an additional fee.
The full price break down of apartments, including annual income requirements, will be available with the application next month on the NYC Housing Connect website.
