An Unparalleled

Lyra’s rent-stabilized, low and moderate income housing program is your opportunity for a brand new luxury apartment home in an amenity-rich building at a rate below market. Program rents and requirements are determined by New York’s Division of Housing and Community Renewal (DHCR).

You may qualify for one of our brand new luxury apartment homes if you meet program requirements, including income level. If your income is between $83,418 and $187,330, or 130% of the Area Median Income (AMI), you may qualify for a studio, one-bedroom, or two-bedroom residence depending on your household size. There are also 70% AMI homes available to those with income between $47,966 and $100,870.

This is a rare and limited-time opportunity to experience the best of Manhattan living.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Qualify For An Affordable Apartment?

How Do I Apply?

The lottery is now closed. To inquire about other low or moderate income apartments please email AffordableCompliance@Rockrose.com

Are These Affordable Apartments Rent Stabilized?

Yes. These apartments have a rent that is based on your income, which is outlined in the chart above, and they are also rent stabilized, which guarantees a stable rent throughout the duration of your lease.

Do You Accept Rental Assistance Subsidies Or Vouchers?

Yes, we accept rental subsidies and vouchers. However, there are other qualifications you may be required to meet. You must fill out the application on NYC Housing Connect.

Do You Allow Pets?

Yes, pets are allowed, but there are limitations on the breed, type, size, and number of pets in an apartment.

What Happens After I Apply?

After you apply on the NYC Housing Connect website and the application window closes, you will be randomly assigned a unique lottery number. Then applicants are notified in numerical order; you will be contacted when your number comes up. Once contacted, you will need to provide additional documents to support the information you filled out in the application. 

What Documents Do I Need?

The documents you will need to provide include, but are not limited to, proof of identity, income (paystubs), assets (bank statements), residency, student status, and family composition. Other items may be requested based on your individual circumstances.

What If My Income Changes After I Apply?

If we have not yet reached your number in the lottery, you can update your income through NYC Housing Connect. If your income changes after you have been contacted or seen an apartment, you should notify Housing Partnership at Lyra@HousingPartnership.com. Please note that your income will be verified again before you sign a lease.

When Will I Hear Back?

We work through the lottery in numerical order. Depending on your number, it may be weeks or months before you are contacted. But these apartments are worth the wait!

Who Can I Contact About My Application?

You can contact Housing Partnership at Lyra@HousingPartnership.com and reference your lottery number and "Lyra" in the subject line of your email.

When Do I Get To See An Apartment?

We understand you are eager to see the apartment, but we must go in numerical order. When it’s your turn, you will be contacted to set up a time to see available apartments for which you may qualify.

I Viewed An Apartment, Does That Mean I Am Approved?

Viewing an apartment does not mean your application is approved. There are subsequent steps in the approval process that must be completed and verified; you can find those details on NYC Housing Connect.
