In other words …. Developers can play Monty Hall “ let’s make a deal with the city “

  1. Some cities in Europe own about half the housing stock, and are not cesspools of corruption. It’s just a way to keep housing prices lower for some number of units, without ruining free market incentives to build more and keep up with maintenance. I strongly prefer this to rent control, and to doing nothing.

  2. Not only that…but no parking…but a 293 space bike rack…the dream of every occupant riding a bike and no occupant owning a car. But the main premise of overstepping boundaries…another grab by the city…outrageous.
