The NYC Housing Preservation & Development launched a lottery Tuesday for 14 income-restricted units in a 12-story luxury building on Jackson Avenue in Long Island City.

The development, called The Green House, is located at 10-25 Jackson Ave. —between 50th and 51st Avenues—and consists of 46 units. The building is striking since it is covered by three large murals that each measure about nine stories tall.

The 14 income-restricted units are for prospective tenants who earn up to 130 percent of the area median income. The units are far from inexpensive and are by no means for low-income workers. The most low-cost studio—at $2,431 per month—is for an individual who earns between $83,349 and $121,420.

Two-bedroom units will rent for $3,090, with applicants required to earn a household income of between $105,943 and $187,330 in order to apply.

There are 3 studios, 4 one-bedrooms and 7 two-bedrooms up for grabs.

The building includes an expansive amenity package, ground-floor retail space, and 40 parking spots.

The murals have been painted by Faile. The developer, Charney Companies, commissioned Faile to paint the murals as a means of enhancing the building and the neighborhood. Faile is known for blending fine art, street art, and popular culture together.

Charney is a Long Island City-based firm — headquartered on 46th Avenue—that also built The Jackson, a 53-unit condo building at 13-33 Jackson Ave.

All units in The Green House feature in-unit washer and dryer appliances, floor-to-ceiling windows, concrete Caesarstone countertops and backsplash, low-iron glass, panelized appliances and cabinetry, wide plank flooring, and sound attenuating insulated walls.

Units come equipped with an all-electric package which reduces environmental impact and includes blackout shades and individualized temperature control.

Residents will also have access to a fully equipped gym by Wright Fit, a residents’ lounge with a wrap-around terrace, co-working lounge, personal storage, and parking with electric vehicle charging stations.

Qualifying New Yorkers can apply for the affordable units until Aug. 9, 2022. To apply click here.

Pay that for my mortgage in nyc. Would rather be paying that to own something rather than making a landlord rich.
