Rendering of Essex Crossing Site 5.

On March 2, 2017, the City of New York opened a housing lottery for 104 below-market rental apartments in the Essex Crossing project on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Asian Americans for Equality is offering application assistance for people interested in participating in the lottery.

The apartments include studios, plus 1, 2 and 3-bedroom units at 145 Clinton St. (between Grand and Broome streets). The project is being built in the former Seward Park Urban Renewal Area. The units are available to families earning between 40% and 165% of AMI (Area Median Income). The applications will be accepted until May 2, 2017.
