Prolific affordable housing developer L+M Development Partners have released a rendering for their newest project at 260 West 153rd Street in Harlem, a seven-story building with rents aimed at low-income families.

Designed by Curtis+Ginsberg Architects, the development will fill a long-vacant lot between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Macombs Place, a block from the Harlem River.

It’ll house 51 apartments split across 41,442 square feet of residential space, for an average unit size of about 812 square feet. There will also be 8,000 square feet of enclosed parking with 18 spots on the first floor. The rest of the ground floor will include community space, occupied by a day care center and offices for Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement. 

HCCI is a non-profit group that builds and manages affordable housing throughout Harlem, mostly for low and middle-income families. They’re co-developing the site with L+M, after acquiring it from the city last year. 

It looks like the facade will be clad in alternating shades of brick, a fairly contextual choice for a block filled with pre-war brick mid-rises and a new construction brick apartment building across the street.

This building will break down into seven studios, 30 one-bedrooms, 13 two-bedrooms, and an extra two-bedroom for the super, according to a press release about the groundbreaking in November.

Eight of the apartments will rent to families earning 30% of the Area Median Income (AMI), which ranges from $17,650 for an individual to $25,150 for a family of four. The other 42 units will go to households who make 50% of the AMI, which starts at $29,400 for an individual and goes up to $41,950 for a family of four.

Overall, the development is expected to cost $21,500,000, financed by a combination of city capital funding, low income housing tax credits and a loan from the Community Preservation Corporation.
