From now until September 27th, New Yorkers earning 60% or less of the area median income are welcome to apply for the lottery in the new, 36-story, curving glass tower.

Developed by Fisher Brothers and designed by Handel Architects, 225 East 29th Street features a reflective curtain wall, transparent base, and shallow plaza for a truly unique stature in the heart of Manhattan.
Handel Architects designed the exterior, and Rockwell Group will appoint the interiors.

The units up for grabs are studios at $833/month, 1-bedroom units at $895/month, 2-bedroom units at $1,082, and 3-bedroom units for $1,247/month.
