CHPC’s Ideas for Housing and Land Use Policy in New York City

With so much political change in New York this year, we felt that it was important to set out our suggestions and priorities for housing and land use policy based on all of CHPC’s work over recent years. We always aim to be a resource for decision-makers inside and outside of government – to help them to understand NYC’s most pressing housing and neighborhood issues, think through the real impact of policy on the three-dimensional built environment, and map out realistic policy steps for … Read more…

Congratulations to our friends and colleagues!


We send our deepest congratulations to our friends and colleagues with new pivotal roles in the De Blasio administration:

Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development

For the staff and board of directors of CHPC, Alicia Glen’s appointment as Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development …is bittersweet.

Georgia Tech Review Team

One of the highlights of 2013  - a year jam-packed full of landmark moments for CHPC – has been working with the Georgia Tech School of Architecture in the development of a design + research studio for graduate students entitled 21st Century Housing: Making Room in the Contemporary City.

Our Board of Directors and staff would like to send our deepest congratulations to all of the election’s winners – and wish them great success as they assume their leadership of our diverse and growing city.

Mayor-Elect Bill de Blasio

One has to go back all the way to Robert Wagner Sr., who served as Commissioner of the Department of Housing and Buildings, to find an incoming mayor with such extensive housing experience prior to his election.  With his experience at HUD and a lifelong commitment to improving neighborhoods Mr. de Blasio is in an extraordinary position to transform the … Read more…

Congratulations to Cory Booker!

Many congratulations to Newark Mayor, Cory Booker, who was elected to the U.S. Senate this week. Booker will become New Jersey’s first ever African American senator and will fill the seat once held by long-serving Democratic senator, Frank Lautenberg, who died in June.

Back in 2007, we were honored to have the new Mayor as the keynote speaker at the CHPC luncheon – introduced by former American football running back, Tiki Barber. You can revisit that speech here:
