Culver City plans to hold a lottery, likely next week, to determine who gets to rent apartments in the Tilden Terrace affordable housing project.
Applications have been flying out the door, with about 450 distributed on March 8; 400 to 500 on March 11; and 100 each day from March 12 to March 15, according to city officials.
If all applications are returned to the . by Friday's deadline, that amounts to 1,250 to 1,350 hopefuls for 33 units or about 40 applicants for every unit.
A lottery is expected the week of March 25 to determine who among the low- to moderate-income applicants may rent the units.
The building is scheduled to open in July and will be smoke-free and pet-free.
Rents will range from $596 for a one-bedroom unit to $1,036 for three bedrooms. Section 8 vouchers will also be accepted.
Income limits go from $23,300 for a single person to $51,350 for a family of seven.
