Applications are available now for the 43 affordable-apartments at the Avalon at Huntington Station development.

Space will be awarded by lottery, with a Dec. 16 application deadline.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for people to become part of what will become a signature community in Huntington Station,” Supervisor Frank Petrone said. “I encourage interested persons to apply now to be part of the lottery that will be held to determine who will become the first tenants.”

The 379-unit Avalon at Huntington Station development on East Fifth Street is under construction. 

The Long Island Housing Partnership, which is administering the program, estimates that rents for the affordable units will start at $932 a month for a one-bedroom, $1,148 a month for a two-bedroom and $1,646 for a three-bedroom unit.

The LIHP has further information at 631-435-4710.

The apartments should be available for lease early next year.            

A total of 303 rental apartments and 76 for-sale townhouses will be available. Of those, 43 of the rentals and 11 of the for-sale units will be affordable. The remaining 260 apartments and 65 townhouses will be offered at market rate.

So u would have to think that a new school is on the way or are we just going to put 50 children in a class?

I wonder if any of the units, either the ones in the lottery or for market price, are handicap accessible?

The next thing on the table after Avalon is building the LIRR Rail Yard were Nassau / Suffolk Lumber is on Broadway to support Trains going thru East Side Access...It's all part of the TOD plan.

John Fay, I heard that too-I remember in 2010 how they had tried to rezone a mile radius surrounding the station for the purpose of the TOD. If they (LIRR) plan on purchasing Nassau/Suffolk Lumber it would be nice for the Town Board to at least apprise the residents of that area to their plans.

Frank Petrone has done last damage to Huntington Station. My sister lived in an Avalon Bay. They are huge developments and are not good neighbors.

My sister lived in a 3 storey walk up in Avalon Bay in MA. It looks like that same design as Petrone's folley that we now have here. Not much handicap accessibility. Not much snow or ice removal in the winter either was her experience.

Wow, particle board sheathing and cheap builder's windows: This looks like the junk they call housing in Florida.
