  • Catalysts for Economic Development: Real Estate and Affordability - Part I: Future of Housing in NYC

    WHEN: Tuesday, April 19, 2022 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

    OVERVIEW

    The two-part event will examine the relationship between economic development and housing as well as commercial real estate in New York City. Each panel of experts will reflect on policies of the past decade by sharing research and first-hand insight. Subsequently, arriving at the present time where the line between a place to dwell and work blurs and emboldens at the same time giving light to the importance of equity and affordability as an integral part of development. Each panel will then conclude with set of planning and policy recommendations.

    PART I: FUTURE OF HOUSING IN NYC

    Research shows us that historically, governments and academics were slow in recognizing the potential of housing as a sectoral tool of economic development. Today, especially as we exit the COVID-19 pandemic, housing is recognized as a crucial instrument in assessing the state of the economy.

    In NYC, despite a push to alleviate past housing shortages caused by a lag in construction following the Great Recession and again during the COVID-19 pandemic, housing production continues to fall behind in the face of its growing population.

    During his tenure, Mayor Bill de Blasio sought to bring incomes and rents into closer alignment with his 2014 Housing New York plan, a promise to create 80,000 new affordable units over ten years. The initiative has resulted in creation of +62,500 new affordable units thus far. However, the rezonings, that are concentrated in lower-income areas, rely on continued availability of public subsidies.

    To that end, the city’s economy and tax revenues must continue to grow robustly for the city to be able to allocate funds for affordable housing, reaffirming the interdependence of Housing and Economic Development.

    The upcoming panel discussion will expand the knowledge of planners on interrelatedness of current housing market conditions and the long-term health of the economy in NYC, introduce them to alternative planning and policy approaches in addressing housing issues, and provide them with new tools in assessing affordable housing rezonings city-wide.
