Cook Street Affordable Housing Applications

cook_st.jpg


Cook Street Housing, LLC is now accepting applications for affordable housing units in this new development on Cook and Varet Streets, between Broadway and Graham Avenue. If this is like other affordable lotteries in the neighborhood, expect there to be pretty long odds to get an apartment – but you gotta be in it to win it.

The project is in part one of the benefits to emerge (slowly) from the 2005 Greenpoint-Williamsburg Rezoning. Some of the units in the projects represent the offsite component of the 20% affordable requirement at Northside Piers (which also has onsite units). The Cook Street developer has also been marketing their units as the offsite affordable units for upland projects receiving inclusionary housing bonuses. Its unclear whether or not any upland developers have taken advantage of this bonus.

    The above address is listed on the housing application.
    My client’s application was return “undeliverable”
    Does anyone have a correct address for applications?

    hey im sorry to hear what happen especially when you had to get all that information that they ask for together. I still dont understand how they could actually tell you they sent you a letter by mistake to me thats ludacris well god will provide a way for you through it all. In a week im exspected to be present for an interview and i hope this doesnt happen to me cause to me it does appear to be a discrimination issue which is unexceptable. i want to know did they interview you? and after that happened did you try to contact anyone or did go to the building site to talk to anyone ? because someone is there that you can speak to i went there a few days ago but thats totally unfair. let me know

    To be brutally honest everyone in this housing organization is all about profileing. Basically if you dont look like the type of people they invision in their building they dont want you, in a nut shell. There has seem to be only asian, indian and jews who they have excepted so far. Dont get me wrong i have no prblem with enthicity but when i tell you that’s what it appears to be. I went in for an interview and felt positive about the interview cause it went well. The interviewer told be exactly from my gross what i qualified for now in less than days a get a letter saying i now make over the program limit, which is crazy and i definately feel mislead, and its soo unfair it just doesnt add up by even my own calculations. But im going to appeal this because i strongly believe there was mishap and i definately deserve a second chance but basically winning the lottery is getting called for an interview if they havent called you i pray for you but it means that your name wasnt selected out of the thousands who applied AND YES PEOPLE DEFINAELY MOVED IN TO THIS BUILDING ALREADY FOR ABOUT 4 WEEKS NOW. THE ONLY THING I CAN TELL YOU IS TO KEEP THE FAITH AND CALL THEIR NUMBERS AND FIND OUT BUT ITS USELESS UNLESS THERE IS AN INTERVIEW SCHEDULED BECAUSE THATS WHO THEY ARE DEALING WITH NOW.

    Interesting! We also received a letter asking for tons of documents to bring to the interview. But did not really seem like an interview because it was more to collect the documents and had us sign a few documents releasing certain information and to give the money order for the credit check. She did not exactly give us any information. I had to keep asking questions: had people moved in yet? Yes but the second building not until the end of the month. Our log number was in the 2000 so I asked if that was the actual number: yes but they did not interview every single person since alot were disqualified off the back.
    She did say that the next step was to process the paperwork and that it would take about a month to a month in a half to get to our number and get back to us. She also said that if we don’t qualify that we would receive a letter in the mail, if we qualify then we would get a phonecall.
    I also noticed when we first arrived at the waiting area, one person was asking for an appeal, and then a second person was letting another one know that she was not accepted but told her to try and good luck. So before we were called I was under the impression that we were being told right off the back based on what happened to those two and what people have posted here. In any case this was our personal experience.
    Has anyone acutally seen a floor plan. Really curious to know if the apts are decent size.

    well in answer to that question yes i saw pictures of the apartments two and three bedrooms. The rooms to be honest are small but the kitchen and living are decent sizes. In question too with this appeal what do i have to write them and what documention do i have to give since from the interview all my documentation is already given in or is hopefully still on file. I have three more days to appeal this. I even went up there to the office yesterday and they wouldnt let me see anyone the guard told me there that i had to write a letter which i know to hear from them will take for ever. Please if someone knows what i should do write back in response to my question. To me this whole deal with this building board seems like a catch because so far nobody i know has gotten accepted and i will write to the board about this because it seems no one is getting a fair shot here. All they are doing is misleading you on these interviews making you feel that there is hope because i was told by my interviewer what i qualified for as far as bedrooms to my gross and that it would take only a week to hear back from them if all goes well with verification of employment and credit check and within two days i get a letter stating gross is too high its just bull and so far reading all you guys reviews no one has had a good response from them and if in fact it is a decremination issue i will make a fuss about this matter.

    Most of the workers at C&C
    Management are young, rude, inexperienced in customer service and dealing with the public. The receptionist can never answer the phone; the individuals that process your paper work can never answer a direct question when asked. All they are interested in is collecting your paper work and if you’re lucky enough to get approved they immediately want you to sign a ridiculous lease with how they want for you to live your life. God for bid you’re in need of an Emergency, they never pick up their lines when you need to reach them directly. Everyone so far i have encountered have given me different information and denies what they said. The city needs to be notified as to what is going on with how ones application is being processed.

    HELLO EVERYONE WELL SO FAR IM STILL AWAITING AN ANSWER FROM MY APPEAL LETTER and whats soo crazy is that not too long after they sent me a letter that i was uneligle i received an interview letter three days after that stating that it was their second and final notice that i need to come in for another interview. This had me in a much confused state because i already went on an interview a month ago so clearly they are not organized and god knows what they are doing or how they are handling my paper work its really annoying. so far no one that i know has got a fair shot in getting an apartment and to be honest this whole confusion and mess that they put you through it turns you off from even wanting to deal with their housing but i know i really and truly need it thats why im fighting it so much. I dont care if i have to go to the board and complain im in this to definately win it even though so far it doesnt appear worth it due to all this hassel. I have one question, did anyone actually get through with them and is now renting an apartment from them? please let me know so i can find out what procedures you had to take? thanks and to those who are still trying im praying for you and good luck and for those you havn’t heard anything yet if its in gods will he will make a way for you.

I have children myself and I just don’t throw my children anywhere just because . So on that note everdently you have other issues that goes wayyyy beyond just looking for an apartment.

    The apartments on Houston and Pitt are in a “poor” neighborhood as well. That’s the point of these buildings;to provide housing for working families in up-and-coming neighborhoods. The neighborhood is not poor, the building inside is beautiful and it would be a pleasure to live in a growing community. Also, the apartments aren’t large (what do you expect?) however, the rent is cheap and in this economy it’s a privilege. Anyone who can get in- take it! I highly doubt that race is a factor in renting. HDC wouldn’t risk their reputation by profiling prospective tenants. They want working, responsible people in this building.

    Hello!
    I received a letter telling me about the interview, which is going to be next week. I am very exited and a little bit worry, after reading all these comments. Worry if I am going to be able to get my apartment. I went over throught all documents they need and check if everything is ok, and it is (I think). I applied for 2-bedroom apartment.
    How does it work? If everything goes well on the day of the interview, am I gonna be taken to see the apartment the same day? Or it happen the other day?
    How about the garage? I know there is a garage – will I have to pay for it? Or its for free for people living in the appartmets won in the lottery?

    Hi, I went to the open house last Saturday from 10-12pm. From what I see there, the kitchen and living room size are okay, but bedroom size (square size) is a little small (don’t think it is good for a king size bed). They have park lot, but it is by lottery only, and they charge $99/month. They also have a laundry room, which mean you cannot have your washer at home. Total of 9 floors, each floor has 9 apartments. I am going to have the interview this week, but I think my household income is a little over. Well, I hope this information helps.

    Great News! I got my apartment I will sign the lease this week. If everything goes well on the interview they will ask you to view the apt on the same date or to schedule a viewing. That’s if you immediately qualify. If you’re missing paperwork OR they are hesitant about considering you, they will respond with “we will notify you withing two weeks if you qualify”. Meaning it’s hit or miss. I’m not sure whether you would qualify with unemployment, but, you should try anyway. I’M EXITED and I wish you all the best!

    On November 10, 2009 i had an interview. Prior to my interview i just happen to run across this particular website. I read alot of negative comments and i felt sick to my stomach. Well, getting back to the day of my interview. I felt a weirdness in my stomach, like something was not right. My application stated 3 bedrooms, they said they were no more 3bds in both buildings all they had were 2 bedrooms available. They said i would have to put my name on the waitlist for a 3 bedroom apartment, which i didn’t, after the long, gruesome process, i felt if i requested a 3 bedroom apt. i should be offered a 3 bedroom apt. at the time of the interview. I felt some shadyness going on. Anyway, after about a 7 minute interview, after waiting at least 2 hrs for the interview, they told me they would contact me with a letter within 2 or 3 weeks stating my eligiblity or ineligibilty. Well heres the shadyness. On Friday the 13th of November, got a letter in the mail from these people. The letter was dated November 10th, the same day of my interview, stating my ineligibilty. How shady is that! God don’t like ugly!

    Julia to answer your question, everyone that goes in for an interview has to pay a $25 (credit check) money order; it was stated on the interview cover letter. It also states that it is non-refundable. If you feel that they were unfair with you then you should appeal the decision. I guess everyone has received different responses from the management company. I can’t agree because my experience was positive. But I encourage you to appeal and there are a lot of 2 bedroom apts left, I think the 3 bedrooms were the first to go.

    Hey!
    So I went for the interview, unfortunately I didn’t get my apartment. I qualified when they looked at my last tax income, however they also predicted my future income based on mine and my wife’s last 6 checks form current work. And it came out that we are going to break their range (it was from $36000- $41000, dont remember exact) for about $15000. Saying that their estimation based on last 6 checks is irrelevant because I can lost my job anyday – so my wife, didn’t help. At least now I know how to deal with this kind of interviews… Prior to the interview make your checks (you receiving every week) lower – talk to your boss about that – and I am sure he will help with this 😉
    Someone asked about unemployment – yes, they do count it.
    And last but not least- Money order: my money order cost me $50, however noone asked me about money order, I didn’t bother as well, so I took my MO back with me 😛 At least something.
    Greets and good luck people!

Clearly stated on all documents that even if you are eligible or not the money order is taken (unless, you’re as lucky as Martin). Anyway, as soon as you walk into the interview they screen you and my credit check was pulled before I even walked into the interview. If you’re not content with the result, you should appeal. Something was obviously off. Ex: if you don’t have all the required documents then you could be disqualified on the spot or you’re credit report was pulled, etc (not saying that was your case; just making an example). I’m definitely content and followed all instructions and move in next week. I wish you the best of luck and if you appeal you can definitely get the apt. I know of many others who were initially rejected, appealed and are now moving in.

    Only the people who did the application back in May, and win the lotto # (choosen randomly) were able to attend the open house. The application cycle closed already, and I was told that they want to move everyone who was eligible by end of december. I thought you signed your lease and got the apartment already. Well, I went to the interview last week, but I think my chance of getting an apartment was pretty low.

    Cissy,
    I posted a comment stating I had received my apt. The Jen you’re referring to is someone else who used the same name. I went through the procedure and received my apt 2 weeks later. Sorry for the confusion. I will change my name (for posting purposes).

    This comment is for Maria. I don’t know why you think i’am angry at you. I never implied that i was angry at you. To correct you in what you said in your last comment, i did have all documents at the time of my appointment. When i arrived, like you i submitted by all my documents but the sign said, money order or check which at the time i didnt have any. I had cash. I am happy that you got an apartment. I am justing telling my experience at the interview.

    denied my application because household income exceeded the limited range. I tried to email the contact person, they OPENed and READ my email on last Friday, but still didn’t give me a reply for my question regarding appeal until today. You now can see how professional are they. Money order is another rip off because they may just deny you once they see your income which is over the limit, and just cash in the money order instead using the money to do credit check.

    I finally received my keys and I started moving into the apartment. The tenants that have moved in so far seem respectable and everyone stays inside. The apt has a walk-in closet and I’m excited about the kitchen and master bedroom. Not huge! but very comfortable for a family of 3 or 4 Word of advice for those who want to appeal and want the management company to answer. When you call, do it once, and be very detailed. They will NOT call you if you nag (not implying that anyone here does) Always fax in your documents as opposed to mailing them. And last but not least, if you don’t qualify for this property you should apply for Palmer’s Dock or Schaefer’s landing. This management company has various buildings which are more attractive than this one.

    Mary, the website is C&C mangers it should give you all the information you need.
    I read the response about not having pets. I think that is not fair. Did they state that on the lease? Me and my boyfriend mailed our applications but we were not selected in the lottery. As I read the comments people are not satisfy with the outcome of cook st.

    The lease did state that there aren’t pets allowed in the bldg. So before someone signs a lease, you need to read what you sign. If you wanted a pet you had to discuss it with the management company. When you finalize the paperwork at the management office. They “specifically” tell you not to call the super, call maintenance at the management company. So, we really need to learn how to read the fine print. The super cannot do anything without the authorization of C&C. All of this was stated by the person who interviews you.

    I was picked for lottery, submitted all documentation on interview to prove I would be eligable. I then recieved a letter in October, months after the interview stating I wasn’t eligable. I appealed by fax and by mail to correct the error made on Employment verifications(not sure if errors of calculations were done by C&C or employer) for me and my daughter. I have yet to recieve any follow up from C&C, after several attempts all voicemails are left unanswered, very disappointed by there custumer service.

    I just saw that these people are selling affordable housing for $3000 that is crazy! Instead of renting to working people that really need it they trying to make money? You know there will come a judgement day for these people GOD does not like ugly! I really feel sorry for this agency! They denied me and I make a good salary. Anyway I got approved for housing. So it don’t matter. I just feel bad for the ones who do need housing and can’t get it for stupid reasons. What comes around goes around.
