CHPC conducts cutting-edge, trusted research that reveals new insights into issues facing the housing stock of New York City. Our methodologies combine data analysis, policy analysis, case studies, and interviews with leaders from across the housing industry and government. We use the research to put forward practical policy solutions so that the City and the housing industry can better meet the needs of the population.
A case-study examination of the hurdles in NYC’s zoning and housing regulations that prevent buildings from reaching their full potential as prescribed, creating an inefficiency that robs the city’s housing stock of units.
A part of CHPC’s work since its founding in 1937 has been the creation and upkeep of NYC’s public housing. That work continues today as we evaluate new strategies to preserve this critical stock of housing.
