Not any more. That unit is now $2,134, which is less than the sticker price on 36 of 66 studios at the "100% affordable" (aka subsidized and income-linked) 535 Carlton, which should accept tenants early next year.
Yes, I know that affordable units are stabilized for at least 30 years, and thus offer protections over time.
But my point stands: a good (and disproportionate, compared to promises) chunk of so-called "affordable housing" is way too costly for those who rallied for it.
It also raises questions about how easy it will be to get tenants for those 36 (near-/over-market) studios at 535 Carlton (and commensurate studios at 38 Sixth, another "100% affordable" building).
