Very pro-development Real Estate Board of New York president Steven Spinola talks to the Times this week about working on affordable housing proposals with Mayor de Blasio: "He's accepted the fact that they're going to have to increase density and change zoning, and so that is very much part of the plan. ... The city is talking about a program of 50-30-20, where 30 percent are reserved for the middle- to moderate-income and 20 percent for low-income." Unsurprisingly, Spinola also thinks the Landmarks Preservation Commission is super inefficient and should be reformed. [NYT; previously]
