It’s affordable for people with appropriate yearly income. Same as with apartments with income limits of 50K or less. Those making more cannot get them. It is fair that there are below market rate apartments offered for every income level.

Trump is DeBlasio over building luxury buildings, and giving huge tax breaks for rich developers

You realized you just described Trump exactly right? What a sad hypocrite.

Rent too damn high

Under regular city RE guidelines at 40x monthly rent, one would need to make just about $90K for the “affordable” studio. Not sure how city decides the threshold range to be far lower at $76k. No matter how you look at it, it’s not affordable for the working class and even middle income people. Rent is obviously too damn high….

The three bed prices are reasonable compared to what a three bed costs in the market. But yeas these studio prices are ridiculous. This is not affordable housing.

Why bother to call the apartments affordable if only to entitle developer to tax breaks?
