The NYC Department of City Planning’s (DCP) current SoHo/NoHo Neighborhood Plan seeks to rezone these two historic neighborhoods to promote equity and allow for the addition of thousands of new housing units, including hundreds of affordable housing units. However, this project has raised questions about whether and how new housing can be added in historic neighborhoods across the city.  

This event will explore why it is not only possible but instrumental that new housing is built in historic areas. Doing so would open access to areas rich in transit and jobs to those who might not otherwise be able to live there. A distinguished group of panelists will address how the proposed SoHo/NoHo Neighborhood Plan and other potential actions by the city government could adapt our built environment for a more equitable future.
