Affordable housing units start at $1550 for a studio apartment for residents earning 80% of the area median income. The range of incomes that will be considered are $55,646 – $167,570 for households made up of 1-5 people.

The building’s amenities include 24-hour front desk concierge, a fitness center, a playroom, a resident lounge, and pet grooming station. Apartments are spacious and modern, with features like in-unit laundry, central air conditioning, dishwasher, and floor to ceiling windows. 

266 Kent is operated by Two Trees Management, whose name you might have heard recently – their River Ring project got the stamp of approval from New York City Council this past December.
