A Conversation with NYC Council Member Greenfield


EisnerAmper tax partner Bill Timlen discusses land use planning, affordable housing and infrastructure in New York City with NYC Council Member David Greenfield. Their discussion addresses the comprises needed to get real estate deals done in New York City, including One Vanderbilt’s agreement to invest $223 million in transit public infrastructure in exchange for the rights to expand their property. Their discussion led to the new Mandatory Inclusionary Housing program, the 421a program, and tax incentives to create more affordable housing in New York City. Their discussion on infrastructure addressed the long travel time on both New Jersey Transit and the MTA, and the need to invest more in infrastructure in general.
