In a city as crowded and expensive as New York City, there is a growing need for people to have safe and affordable housing. With this demand comes great innovation, as well as roadblocks and challenges between construction, financing, and policy.
In this month’s Buildings + Beyond episode, Robb sits down with Les Bluestone, co-founder of Blue Sea Development. Les has been leading the way in affordable, green building in New York City since the 80’s. He gives us a brief history lesson on affordable housing in NYC, and provides us with his outlook of what affordable development and construction will look like in 5 years and beyond.
