New York City Mayor Eric Adams and New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) Director Dan Garodnick are taking steps towards building new housing across the city, including by laying out a plan to convert vacant offices into housing as part of Mayor Adams’ “City of Yes” plan. The Adams administration is also launching an Office Conversion Accelerator to expedite complex office-to-housing conversion projects — speeding up the process of creating new housing using millions of square feet of empty offices. At the same time, the Adams administration kicked off the “Midtown South Neighborhood Plan,” a community planning process that will update zoning rules that currently allow only manufacturing and office space.
