In 2013, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plan to lease out public housing land and allow developers to build market-rate apartment buildings on it petered out after low-income residents of the projects revolted against the idea. Now, after condemning his predecessor’s idea, current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio also wants to use that land for development, albeit of a different kind, to build low- and moderate-income housing units and possibly a few supermarkets and retail stores.
