NYCHA PRESENTS A BLUEPRINT FOR CHANGE AT NEW YORK HOUSING CONFERENCE’S 2020 SUMMER SERIES
Long-term Strategy Includes Establishing a Public Housing Preservation Trust and a Stabilization Plan for Every Building

From the St. Croix Source:
"The last phase of the Louis E. Brown Villas is now complete and 90 hurricane-resilient, family apartments are ready for occupancy, according to the V.I. Housing Authority.
These join 102 family units completed in 2011 and 40 completed in 2013, all developed by McCormack Baron Salazar. According to a news release from the Housing Authority, the total development cost for all 232 units was $80.7 million and included financing support from VIHA.
From The Salt Lake Tribune:
Residents in Salt Lake City’s Ballpark community were celebrating Thursday after a row of three blighted houses that neighbors say had become magnets for criminal activity were finally razed.
It was a hard-won victory but a triumph nevertheless in an area that has a disproportionately high number of boarded and vacant buildings but has had a hard time addressing them thanks to a city ordinance that prioritizes preserving such structures.
From the San Antonio Express-News:
A developer is moving forward with plans to build an eight-story mixed-use project near the La Villita Historic Arts Village downtown.
Dennis McDaniel of Weal Development wants to construct the building on a parking lot at South St. Mary’s and East Nueva streets, across from St. John’s Lutheran Church. Dubbed St. John’s Square, it will include 252 units, ground-floor retail space and a parking garage.
