About the 21-34 Broadway Apartments Housing Lottery
Twelve units are available through this lottery, evenly split between one- and two-bedrooms. At this point, it is unclear how many other units there are in the building. Additional details on amenities and apartment features are sparse, but we do know that the new development will feature bike storage in addition to a parking garage.
The building is located in the heart of Astoria along Broadway’s bustling commercial strip. The area offers a mix of basic amenities like post offices and schools as well as a handful of Astoria’s restaurant and cultural destinations. Both Socrates Sculpture Park and the Noguchi Museum are within easy walking distance. From the building, residents will have access to the Q104, Q102, and Q100 buses in addition to the N and W trains at 30th Ave. station.
