About the Course
Capital Project Symposiums: Infrastructure, Zoning & Transportation. Executive came out to be a part of the next level of conversation regarding the NYC Department Housing Preservation Development’s sustainability strategy, the ambitious housing agenda, and East New York Zoning. The NYC Capital Ten Year Capital strategy 95.8 billion dollars in planned spending. The Ten Year Capital Strategy broadly anticipates funding levels that will enable the City to design its capital projects to standards that minimize green house gas emissions and maximize the resiliency, redundancy and capacity of City infrastructure to severe floods and other natural disasters.
The Department of Housing Preservation and Development, HPD, budget is structured to meet the goals of Housing New York: A Five Borough, Ten Year Plan with a goal of creating and preserving a total of 200,000 units Citywide from 2014 to 2024.
The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, HPD, works together with a variety of public and private partners to achieve affordable housing goals of supporting New Yorkers with a range of incomes, from the very lowest to those in the middle class. HPD accomplishes these goals through a combination of loan programs, tax incentives, disposition of City-owned land, tax credits, and other development incentives. HPD also works with developers to ensure that projects are designed and built in keeping with agency standards for quality construction, environmental sustainability, and cost containment.
The Capital Project Symposiums are a collaboration between Green Building Worldwide and EIG. We thank you for your continued participation.
