Project Description

NBLC was retained in 2016 and 2017 to undertake a detailed analysis of possible alternatives to the Cities affordable housing “Large Sites Policy” that lead to an exploration of possible inclusionary zoning policy options. The study involved an analysis of five different building forms in 12 submarkets of the City to assess the relative economic impacts of policy approaches across the City.  The study identified that the imposition of inclusionary zoning in many parts of the City would be a significant deterrent to investment and renewal.
