“Everything Old is New Again” – NYC Building Conversions – Fall 2022
Mitch Korbey, partner and chair of Herrick’s Land Use and Zoning practice, is joined by Basha Gerhards, Senior Vice President of Planning at REBNY, to discuss plans recently announced by the Mayor and the Planning Department to permit the conversion of certain office buildings in New York City. Current zoning permits limited conversions in limited areas, but this new plan would more broadly apply. Our speakers discuss the many nuances for such developments across the City. As the need for housing of all types continues to grow, Mitch and Basha’s dialogue of what is possible, probable and next for the City of New York is timely and critical.
