Known as the Enclave at the Cathedral, this pair of 13- and 15-story towers adjacent to the famous Cathedral of St. John the Divine (the largest cathedral in the world, to be exact) in Morningside Heights was built in 2016. At the time, a housing lottery was opened for the 87 affordable apartments of the 428 unit rental. Four years later, a waiting list has gone live that will randomly select 150 candidates earning 60% of the region’s median income for future vacancies in those units, which range from $888/month of studios to $1,427/month of two bedrooms.

When Enclave was first announced, it received mixed reviews, with critics objecting to how it obscured certain views of the 127-year-old cathedral. But this location is also its greatest asset in many ways, with a rooftop terrace and barbecue patio that both overlook the historic church. Other amenities include a laundry room, screening room, game room, bike storage, fitness center, art gallery, and parking garage; additional charges apply for some of them.

Its location at 400 West 113th Street is also prime, with Morningside Park less than a block away and Riverside Park a few blocks away. Since it’s right next to Columbia, there are tons of great restaurants, and the 1 and 3 trains are a short walk from 110th Street.

Eligible New Yorkers can join the waitlist until June 22, 2020. Full details on how to apply are available here (pdf). Advertised rents and household income limits are based on HUD’s current 2020 AMI limits and may be adjusted when new annual guidelines are released by HUD. Questions regarding this offer should be directed to NYC Housing Connect by dialing 311.
