The only municipal brownfield program in the US: yeah, NYC has that. A generous, but constantly evolving, brownfield tax credit program: check, NYS has that. An emphasis on redevelopment to include new affordable housing: also found in NY. Join current and past Board members of the New York City Brownfield Partnership, a primary resource for information on brownfields and brownfields redevelopment in New York City and New York State as they tee up recent benefits, opportunities, and best practices of brownfield redevelopment. Learn about the nuanced differences between the NYC and NYS brownfield programs and get advice on which program is best for your project and why. Successful brownfield projects which utilized the tax credits and produced new affordable housing units will be highlighted as will the controversial rezoning around the Gowanus Canal, a Superfund site. The rezoning would allow residential development and towers as high as 30 stories and calls for higher density mixed-use development as well as enhanced public access to the canal.
