The New York Building Congress applauds Mayor Adams and Deputy Mayor Maria Torres-Springer’s bold economic recovery initiatives. This blueprint will bring much-needed improvements to the city today and create jobs and a lasting impact for years to come. Better interagency cooperation, clearer zoning regulations, and streamlined approval processes will allow the building industry to quickly begin work on essential development projects across the city. From combating the housing crisis through vacant commercial building conversions to allowing mixed-use districts to thrive under more flexible zoning codes, this plan will kickstart a robust, equitable economic recovery across the city. These are the types of pragmatic reforms we’ve all been waiting for. We would also like to thank Dan Garodnick, director of the Department of City Planning, for his expert guidance as we move to implement these policies.
