Applications are now being accepted for 52 mixed-income units in a new luxury rental building on the Upper West Side. Located at 266 West 96th Street, the 23-story building includes 171 luxury apartments and exclusive amenities, including an expansive rooftop terrace. New Yorkers earning 70, 80, and 130 percent of the area median income, or between $40,526 for a single person and $198,250 for a household of five people, can apply for the apartments, priced from $1,096/month studios to $3,703/month two bedrooms.

The project is built to the standards of the Enterprise Green Communities program, which prioritizes environmentally sustainable building construction in addition to the health and wellness of tenants, according to Peakhill Equity’s website.
