Housing Production On NYC Landmarked Properties

May 31, 2014

REBNY analyses conducted in 2013 showed that nearly 28 percent of Manhattan is landmarked and that fewer than 2% of new housing units built in Manhattan over a ten-year period of time were constructed on landmarked properties.

The following analysis of properties and new housing activity in the other four boroughs—the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island—over the same time period (2003-2012) shows that although landmarking is not as widespread as in Manhattan, the creation of housing and affordable housing is also sharply curtailed on landmarked properties located in those boroughs.
