An information session on The Beverly apartment complex will be held tonight at the Boston Public Library in Dudley Square, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
The Beverly is the "affordable / workforce housing" development currently finishing up construction across from North Station.
Each of the 239 apartments will be rented to those earning a specific amount of money, based on what's known as the Area Median Income (AMI).
Some units will be rented to those making as little as 30% of AMI (around $25,000 for two people), while others will go to those making up to 165% of AMI (about $135,500 for two people), according to the developer and city. (Details on the AMI and qualifying data, on the BPDA website.)
Who will get the apartments, assuming more people apply than there is supply, is based on a lottery that is expected to take place in mid-September. Applications to be entered into the lottery are due by September 6. Applications may be picked up at the information session (perhaps they'll be holding more?) or you apply online.
