NYC passes plan for affordable housing
conflict in eastern part of the country. Many of NewYork City’s residential neighborhoods will feature denser and taller development as part of a sweeping housing plan that will mandate the construction of more affordable housing and rewrite the city’s decades-old zoning to enable more residential development. The plan, a major political victory for first-termMayor Bill de Blasio, was passed on Tuesday by the City Council and intends to fundamentally reshape the way housing is developed in the US’ largest city. It will link approval for increased development to the creation of more affordable apartments.
