Why is the Zoning for Quality and Affordability & Mandatory Inclusionary Housing so controversial?

The NYC Council Speaker has announced a tentative deal to approve Mayor DeBlasio’s Zoning for Quality and Affordability (ZQA) and Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) proposals. Please join WHF for a panel discussion to unpack the details of the compromise. Once approved, how will these two policies impact the fabric of NYC? What are the potential benefits and challenges for the affordable housing industry? How might the proposals promote or hinder the greater goals of creating quality design in a more equitable New York City?
