This development is also a smoke-free building like several other newly constructed affordable housing buildings in The Bronx and includes amenities like bike storage lockers, a gym, outdoor terrace, shared laundry room, and air conditioning.

Probably the best feature of the building’s location is its walking distance of just a few short blocks to Arthur Avenue, home to NYC’s real Little Italy. Also in close proximity, you’ll find the New York Botanical Garden, The Bronx Zoo, and Fordham University as well as shopping along Fordham Road.

Lotter ends on March 16, 2022, and you can apply either online through Housing Connect’s website or you can request an application to be mailed to you.
