Join us for a sneak peak of City Point in Downtown Brooklyn which will open to the public later this summer. Although not a traditional public/private partnership, City Point is on a long-term ground lease administered by the New York City Economic Development Corporation and is implementing City-wide goals including the provision of affordable housing and local job creation. The development process, including the coordination between developer and EDC, illuminates many of the challenges and opportunities of large-scale mixed-use development in the City.
We will be joined by Aron Gooblar from Washington Square Partners and Mark Spector from NYCEDC who have both been involved in the the project since its initiation for a discussion about the project and an optional hard hat tour. We will then continue our conversation over drinks and snacks at Brooklyn Brewhouse.
