Almost exactly three years since building permits were filed, things are moving quickly as The Robeson nears completion. A recent site visit saw construction topped out at 10 stories high and netting coming down on the red brick facade designed by STAT Architecture. Meanwhile, an affordable lottery has just been announced for 73 units within.
Individuals and households earning 50 to 165 percent of the area median income ($25,509-$218,460/year) have until May 26, 2020 to take part in the lottery. Rents range from $680/month for studios to $3,452/month for three-bedrooms. All New Yorkers are welcome to apply, but residents of Manhattan Community Board 10 and municipal employees will be given preference for a certain number of units. Full details and criteria can be found here.

Residential amenities at The Robeson include a roof deck, bike room, and card-operated central laundry room. It is taking shape at 407 Lenox Avenue, which is situated in a once-derelict section of Harlem that has enjoyed a recent renaissance. It is up the street from soul-food classic Sylvia's and celebrated bistro Red Rooster alike. Local attractions and conveniences include the National Jazz Museum of Harlem, Revolution Books, the shopping of 125th Street, and the 2/3 subway stops at 125th and 135th Streets. It also takes place amidst a building boom bringing new condo and rental units alike to the neighborhood.
