Good design is getting a lot of attention in NYC recently, yet design is only one of the integral parts of building with a long term perspective. We all want a beautiful, functional city, but mandating better design without addressing the constraints in existing processes will not necessarily yield a better result. While some sectors are thriving, the city is in desperate need of infrastructure with insufficient resources to make it a reality. As a private company pushing the bounds of the residential and mixed-use markets, we thrive in complexity and live to see their concrete solutions by building a better process. Public-Private Partnerships can combine our city’s best skills to work on our hardest problems, incentivized to execute.
