A virtual panel discussion on strategies to limit real estate speculation in NYC, and recover land value for the public good.
About this Event
Moments of fiscal crisis define government leaders, and as New York City barrels toward a financial crisis to rival our most difficult days, forthcoming leadership must take bold action toward an equitable recovery that leverages the collective value communities have created in our city and that meets the needs of the city’s most vulnerable.

Pratt Center’s new report, Hidden Treasure, authored by Laura Wolf-Powers and Pierina Sanchez, shows how value is being created every day but is hidden from public view and from NYC’s tax base. On November 10, join Pratt Center for a discussion and debate on lessons from the de Blasio rezonings and bold strategies to limit speculation and recover land value for the public good.

Confirmed speakers include:

Georgia Kromrei, The Real Deal (Moderator)
Marie Winfield, Fair Housing Justice Center
Julia Duranti-Martínez, New Economy Project
George Sweeting, NYC Independent Budget Office
