gbNYC is a frequent advocate that the most sustainable of construction practices is to respect existing buildings, particularly in as dense a place as New York City where our stock is diversified across every sector of the real estate market. Now, New Yorkers interested in preservation have a new outlet to help shape the future of the city’s historic treasures over the next 22 years.
A 15-minute online survey, available here, aims to gather input from the entire preservation community as the first phase of a program designed to analyze successes and form a short-list of ideas, come up with recommendations based on these findings, and issue a report by the end of the year to be circulated among a wider audience.
Preservation Vision: NYC, is a collaborative effort between the Pratt Area Community Council, New York Community Trust, and the New York State Council on the Arts, among others, and overseen by the non-profit Minerva Partners. The year-long program is intended to coincide with Mayor Bloomberg’s various PlaNYC 2030 initiatives.
