It's a dollar menu deal for artist studio space.
A proposed mixed-use building in Ridgewood at 176 Woodward Ave. plans to dedicate 3,000 square feet for artists and community groups to rent space for $10 per year — under a buck a month.
Developer Slate Property Group added the feature after working with Councilman Antonio Reynoso to obtain his support for a zoning variance on the property, which is currently zoned for industrial use, according to Reynoso's office and Department of Buildings records.
The proposal for the 88-unit building originally had no affordable housing, but developers committed to 50 percent affordable units, along with the affordable community space after discussions with Reynoso's office and community members, the councilman's office said.
The City Council approved the plan on Tuesday.
The affordable units, of which 20 percent will be permanently affordable, will be distributed to people earning between $23,000 to $105,000 per year.
Six-figure salaries qualify for affordable housing? HA HA HA HA HA!!! And why the hell is Reynoso choosing which groups will benefit from this? You have to love the new era of tweeding. Vito Lopez, Jr...
