The building has 222 units total: 151 are rentals (with monthly rents ranging from $800 to $1,200 and 71 are co-ops, 33 of which are designated for affordable housing. The units range from 800-square-foot one-bedrooms to 1,500-square-foot three-bedrooms, spanning from $135,000 to $193,000 in price. Income restrictions vary from $54,000 to $145,000.
