133rd Street

133rd Street is the northern boundary of the planned expansion area and is dominated on its north side by 3333 Broadway, a dreary 35-story, 1,100-apartment complex that opened in 1976. The building was constructed under the Mitchell-Lama program, a New York State program that sold the land to the developer for $1 and offered heavily subsidized construction loans and exemptions from property taxes in return for building exclusively for low and moderate income families. Although the building was built atop the Roberto Clemente Middle School and supposed to stay in the program until the middle of the century, the developer pulled out of the program in 2004. As units are vacated, they are renovated and rented at market rate...significantly above what the previous residents were paying. (reference)
