This afternoon, Council Member Salamanca and the full City Council approved La Central, a 100 percent affordable housing project with 992 affordable apartments in the Bronx. La Central is the largest project subject to Mandatory Inclusionary Housing policy to be approved thus far.
“Today’s vote marks a big step forward for families in the Bronx. This affordable housing crisis hurts families, from those struggling in poverty to those trying to make it into the middle class. With the backing of the City Council, we are making sure that a thousand more Bronx families will be safe in new affordable homes, with services and recreation facilities that will strengthen an entire neighborhood. We again thank Council Member Salamanca for his work to secure such an inclusive vision. Together, we are fighting for working families and building strong communities.”
