Published reports say that the new building at 9306 Shorefront Parkway will be housing homeless in 30 percent of its units under a new city ruling. Applications for the new 63-unit affordable apartments will close on December 27.
A new report from Crain’s New York Business puts a question mark on the new residential building opening in the near future at 9306 Shore Front Parkway in Rockaway Beach.
According to the highly-respected business newspaper, which is known for its excellent contacts with both business and city government, Mayor Bill de Blasio is apparently attempting to put homeless at the head of the line for affordable housing units such as those planned for the new Rockaway Beach building.
Hey, remember when this was posted which included a remark about it becoming a shelter? Well, BdB fooled us as it will only be part-shelter. What a way to revitalize Rockaway!
They are framing this as "these are for the homeless who can afford an apartment" which makes us wonder why, if they have a job and can pay a modest rent, they don't just move somewhere more affordable.
