Developers to circulate applications for Hunters Point South 1Q14, officials say

The application period for the affordable rental units at Hunters Point South is expected to begin some time during the first quarter of 2014, according to city housing officials.

The developers typically start notifying the public about the application period seven months prior to the completion of an affordable apartment complex.

“Construction is about 30% to 35%  done, which means they are close to marketing the properties,” said Gabriella Amabile, with the Department of Housing Preservation & Development.

The marketing will be conducted by the developers and will include an ad campaign, postcards/fliers, library visits, public meetings and discussions with elected officials.

The applicants will be aiming to snag one of the 925 apartments that are expected to be completed toward the end of 2014. The development is comprised of two buildings that have a total of 925 units– all designated as affordable.

Once the marketing campaign begins, applicants will have a 60 day window to submit their application. While there are strict income limits, once those are met–preference is given for Western Queens residents.

Until the application period begins, the public is able to go on NYC.gov/housingconnect and build a profile, which can be used for their Hunters Point South applications once the 60-day window opens.

The developers (particularly the Related Companies and Phipps Housing) will be in charge of marketing the affordable complex—and verifying the applicants income statements.

However, the NYC Dept. of Housing Preservation & Development will still oversee that process by conducting surprise inspections or auditing 20% of their work.

I second Melissa’s request for info on the application period. Rent for a familly is very unaffordable, even with 2 moderate incomes. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that there are enough units for those who need them – my family included 🙂

I would like to have an application for the affordable housing at Hunter’s Point South. Right now I’m living on Roosevelt Island. I cannot continue to live as the rent is getting much to high for me. I’m along with only me to depend on, I just retired from City Services so I know I will be able to afford the rent at Hunter’s Point South. I hope my application will be accepted.

Thank you.

I truly am interested in receiving an application and have been since I first heard about this project in 2010. I lived most of my life in Astoria-Queens but had to moved due to severe problems that I was having with my old complex. I have followed this project for three long years with the hope of being one of the people who is selected for one of these affordable apartments. Until the application process begin I will continue to following the development on this most anticipated I (assume) and most needed project.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards held a candlelight vigil for Tyre Nichols outside Queens Borough Hall Monday, Jan. 30 after Nichols’ death at the hands of police officers in Memphis, Tenn., made national headlines for the brutality in which the officers beat him.

Long Island City teen sentenced in fatal shooting of ‘beloved’ school teacher at Queensbridge Houses in 2020: DA

A Long Island City man on Friday, Jan. 28, was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the 2020 fatal shooting of a public school social studies teacher who was out walking his dog when he was caught in the crossfire during a confrontation between gang rivals in broad daylight, just blocks from his home, according to Queens District Attorney’s office.

Ike Ford, 19, of 12th Street, in Long Island City, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the first degree before Queens Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Holder. The teacher, George Rosa, 53, was shot in his abdomen by a stray bullet fired by Ford, who was just 17 years old at the time of the shooting but was sentenced as an adult given the severity of the crime, according to Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz.
