If the PGA TOUR thought the players heading to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series were going to stop at Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson, it’s already several lengths behind.

On Monday, Brooks Koepka became the latest star to go for golf’s newest contender by throwing millions (and counting millions) of dollars at the game’s biggest stars.

While the list of players to join LIV Golf ranges from grand champions to journeymen looking for automatic pay, one thing is clear: they are not done yet.

Other players will leave. Big names will leave. The PGA TOUR’s reactionary attempt to add more events with big prize pools won’t be enough. None of this is a surprise. We’ve talked about it before in this space.

The TOUR must act quickly to prevent more stars from leaving, starting from the top.

Brooks, Bryson DeChambeau, Phil and DJ are gone. Others are on the way. Here’s our ranking of the players the PGA TOUR can’t afford to lose as LIV Golf just got started.

1. Tiger Level

Tiger Woods

Who knows what Tiger can do on the golf course at this point, but his impact is undeniable. If the most famous and richest athlete in the sport gives the sign that all is well, the TOUR is over.

2. Roaring Rory

Rory McIlroy

Along with Mickelson at LIV and Tiger Limited, Rory is now the most famous “best player available”. McIlroy isn’t Woods, but he’s so professed his hatred for LIV and his love for the PGA TOUR that if he leaves, you know it’s over.

3. Code Red

Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm, Scottie Scheffler, Jordan Spieth, Will Zalatoris

All of the players listed here are fairly young and have proven they can win majors.

Koepka has one win since 2019, but he is opinionated and marketable. Bryson can also be considered a major loss for the TOUR because he is eccentric, untraditional and hits the ball far.

Scheffler is the No. 1 player in the world and the defending Masters champion. Zalatoris is growing in popularity with finalists in three of the four majors.

JT was clearly ahead of Spieth, but the general public knows Jordan well. Rahm has spoken out so strongly against LIV that if he changes his mind, it would be code red.

With Brooks and Bryson already gone, one of the other starters would be a blow.

4. Proceed with caution

Viktor Hovland, Hideki Matsuyama, Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele, Cameron Smith, Max Homa, Phil Mickelson

These golfers aren’t dangerous on their own, but if a bunch of them leave, the TOUR has a problem.

DJ is demoted here because of his “blabla” personality and age. Hovland was often associated with conversations about the next best talent in the game with Morikawa. Schauele is an Olympic champion and a lifelong competitor. Matsuyama is an international star with a green jacket. Smith is a top 10 player with wins at this year’s PLAYERS Championship and Tournament of Champions.

Homa is not as accomplished as the other members of this group, but his performance is catching up with his popularity on social media.

Mickelson is in the twilight of his career and has burned many bridges, but his time at LIV still carries a lot of weight.

5. Forget your peril

Patrick Cantlay, Sam Burns, Matt Fitzpatrick, Patrick Reed, Joaquin Niemann, Tony Finau

They might not be household names for the casual audience, but they are for those who tune in weekly.

Fitzpatrick just won the US Open, Reed is a great champion and Cantlay won the FedExCup last season.

Burns, Niemann and Finau knock on the door of great success.

6. International favorites

Paul Casey, Adam Scott, Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen, Shane Lowry, Tyrrell Hatton

Most are familiar with Sergio, of course, but the others divide their time between Europe and the United States and may not catch the eye of the casuals at first glance.

7. Massively Disturbing

Billy Horschel, Sungjae Im, Abraham Ancer, Daniel Berger, Corey Conners, Jason Kokrak, Seamus Power, Harold Varner III, Marc Leishman, Webb Simpson, Bubba Watson, Gary Woodland, Harris English, Lucas Herbert

None of these golfers get much attention except with a loud outfit here and there – Jordan shoes from Varner III and pastels from Watson, well past his prime.

Others will pop up on the leaderboards from time to time, but none will have any significant weight or reaction if they fly away.

8. Has-Beens Without Threat

Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Stewart Cink, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter

Poulter and Westwood are already gone, finishing 5th and 8th respectively on LIV’s first event. Fowler hasn’t been close to a win in years, but has some market appeal. Day’s harassing comeback cost him chances during his prime.

However, due to their names and backgrounds, people still connect sometimes.

9. Still too early to call

Cameron Young, Talor Gooch, Aaron Wise, Mito Pereira, Davis Riley, Maverick McNealy, Robert MacIntyre, Cameron Davis, Matthew Wolff, KH Lee, Sahith Theegala

Cameron Young, Mito Pereira and Davis Riley have been in contention in recent weeks, but it’s too early to tell what someone of this level will think of their career.

10. The Replaceable

Erik Van Rooyen, Adam Hadwin, Hudson Swafford, Mackenzie Hughes, Keith Mitchell, Luke List, Alex Noren, Sepp Straka, Chris Kirk, Si Woo Kim, Cameron Tringale, Russell Henley, Brian Harman, Sebastian Munoz, Keegan Bradley, Tom Hoge, Kevin Na, Kevin Kisner

Nice players. Don’t move the needle. Sorry.

Ongoing mixed-use Whittier project https://troydeltachi.org/ongoing-mixed-use-whittier-project/ Mon, 20 Jun 2022 07:05:21 +0000 https://troydeltachi.org/ongoing-mixed-use-whittier-project/ A group of developers known collectively as Uptown Community Partners has entered into an exclusive negotiation agreement with Whittier to develop eight city-owned parcels.The group consists of Irvine-based City Ventures, Brentwood-based Thomas Safran & Associates, Montebello-based Gentefy and Santa Ana-based SVA Architects Inc., all of whom are teaming up to develop the 6.4-acre site north […]]]>

A group of developers known collectively as Uptown Community Partners has entered into an exclusive negotiation agreement with Whittier to develop eight city-owned parcels.
The group consists of Irvine-based City Ventures, Brentwood-based Thomas Safran & Associates, Montebello-based Gentefy and Santa Ana-based SVA Architects Inc., all of whom are teaming up to develop the 6.4-acre site north of Philadelphia Street. and west of Bright Avenue. It includes a former Alpha Beta grocery store.

The negotiation agreement between Uptown Community Partners and the city will be exclusive for a period of six months. Ryan Aeh, senior vice president of City Ventures, said construction on the project would begin in 2023 at the earliest.

“It was a really unique opportunity,” Aeh said. “Usually when a development opportunity arises, it’s a single plot and a single developer looking at one type of product. It was several packages. These are eight plots which are all in the town center of Whittier. It is a very interesting and walkable suburban downtown.

The site plans call for 229 units for sale and 115 low and very low income rental units.
There will also be 5,000 square feet of retail development and 251 parking spaces.
The units for sale will be created by City Ventures, which currently has more than 8,000 units in California in its portfolio.

Affordable housing will be developed by Thomas Safran & Associates. The company has developed over 6,000 rental units in Southern California.
“TSA currently owns and operates two affordable housing communities in Whittier,” Jordan Pynes, president of the company, said in a statement. “We are excited to continue this important work with the city and community to provide much needed affordable housing in Whittier.”

Gentefy, meanwhile, is working on the commercial space, which consists of seven micro kitchens for local businesses, a performance stage, a courtyard and more.
SVA Architects carries out the conceptual design of the project.

“One of the exciting opportunities for the development of Whittier – with multiple sites spread throughout the region – is the mission to create intentional spaces between buildings,” said Ernesto M. Vasquez, managing director of SVA Architects, in a communicated. “We can create pedestrian corridors and cohesion from the street level. Wide sidewalks will be enabled with public art, landscaping and gathering spaces, allowing Uptown to become a place of human connection where community is built. We envision the Uptown neighborhood as the crown jewel of Whittier.

Aeh said part of the reason so many developers are involved is that the team wanted to “think about what each package wants to be and what is the team that we need to assemble to program it and implement it. “.

“Any time there’s an opportunity to work on a multi-faceted project like this, you want to put together a top-notch team, so we were really looking for bands that perform at a high level,” he said. he adds.

The project, Aeh said, would be a welcome change for Whittier, which hasn’t seen as much development in recent years as other Los Angeles neighborhoods, such as Culver City and Hollywood.

“Taking some of the unused properties and surface parking lots and turning them into new housing, retail… is really going to be a game changer. It will be a boost to energize downtown Whittier,” he said.

Keke Palmer’s career is on fire. The actress will play one of the main characters in the highly anticipated Pixar film Light year, adding another family hit to his filmography. Later this summer, Palmer will star alongside Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya and Oscar nominee Steven Yeun in Jordan Peele’s third film, Nope.

Both projects sound like surefire critical hits, likely to add two more fresh certified hits to Palmer’s Rotten Tomatoes scorecard. But over the course of his career, critics have enjoyed some of his films much more than others.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

ten Happy Noise (2012) – 32%


Palmer stars alongside two icons, Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton, in Todd Graff’s 2012 musical cries of joy. The plot follows two strong-minded women who form an unlikely partnership to fight budget cuts as their small-town choir prepares for an important competition. Jeremy Jordan and Courtney B. Vance co-starred.

Sharing the screen with two legends can be intimidating, but Palmer holds his own against Latifah and Parton. cries of joy received mixed to negative reviews, with critics praising Latifah and Parton’s musical numbers and performance but criticizing the script and pacing.


9 Ice Age: Continental Drift (2012) – 37%


ice-age-buck-wild-peaches

The Ice Age The franchise has gone on far too long, steadily shrinking with each new entry. The fourth film, subtitled Continental Drift, follows the trio of Manny, Sid and Diego adrift on an iceberg and face a band of pirates. Palmer voices the teenage woolly mammoth Peaches, joining a cast that includes Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Dennis Leary and Queen Latifah.

Unlike its predecessors, Ice Age: Continental Drift received mostly negative reviews from critics, who criticized the film’s lack of originality but praised the animation. Still, it was a box office success and received a sequel, which arrived four years later. Today, the long term Ice Age the franchise remains strong, with an untitled sixth film in the works.


8 The Longshots (2008) – 41%


Based on the life of Jasmine Plummer, Fred Durst The Longshots features Palmer and Ice Cube. Palmer plays Plummer, the first girl to enter the Pop Warner Football Tournament, while Ice Cube plays her uncle, a former footballer who becomes Plummer’s coach.

Well-meaning but stereotypical and unimpressive, The Longshots received mixed reviews from critics. Palmer’s performance drew positive reviews, but critics took issue with the film’s lack of originality, which kept it from standing alongside some of cinema’s best sports films.


seven Animals (2014) – 43%

Directed by Christine Crokos and produced by Lee Daniels, 2018 Pimp stars Palmer alongside Vanessa Morgan, Edi Gathegi and recent Oscar nominee Aunjanue Ellis. Palmer plays Wednesday, a pimp who struggles to find a better life for her mother and her boyfriend.

Corbin Bleu followed his musical high school success while starring alongside Keke Palmer in another Disney Channel Original Movie, 2007 Get started!

Like most DCOMs, Get started! is well intentioned and harmless. The film received positive reviews from critics, with particular praise for Bleu and Palmer’s performances. Despite its success on the Disney Channel, Get started! never received a sequel, which remains odd to this day.


4 Light Year (2022) – 80%

Starring an ensemble cast led by Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez, the film follows a group of strippers who drug and rob rich men who visit their club. Palmer plays Mercedes, one of the girls in the group.

Released to commercial and critical success, Hustlers received near-universal praise for its themes and performances from the cast. Lopez received career-best reviews and multiple nominations throughout awards season. His snub at the Oscars remains controversial today.


1 Imperial Dreams (2014) – 92%


Samaara talks on the phone in prison in Imperial Dreams

Surface sampling for SARS-CoV-2 RNA has shown promise in detecting exposure of environments to infected individuals shedding the virus that would otherwise go undetected. Now a new study, published in mSystemsan open access journal from the American Society for Microbiology, shows that the methodology used to detect the COVID-19 virus in nasal swabs in public health clinics, the Viral Transport Medium (VTM)/PerkinElmer Pipeline, can be used to detect the virus on surfaces in indoor environments such as schools.

“Public health labs can now test for the virus that causes COVID-19 not only in people, but also for traces left in the environment with equipment they already have,” said the lead author. of the study, Rob Knight, Ph.D., professor of pediatrics, computer science and engineering, and bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego.

In the study, the researchers compared sampling and testing methods they developed at the university (the sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)/Thermo pipeline) to methods used in public health facilities (the VTM/Perkin Elmer pipeline). The SDS/Thermo methodology uses robotic automation and specific reagents that are often not available in public health laboratories. The researchers placed SARS-CoV-2 on laminated cards in the labs and then tested the two methods of detecting the virus.

The researchers found that the method developed by the university, the SDS/Thermo pipeline, has superior sensitivity and specificity, but the VTM/PerkinElmer pipeline is still sufficient to support surface monitoring in indoor environments such as as schools, prisons and group homes. The SDS/Thermo pipeline showed higher sensitivity with a false negative rate of 9% versus 27% for the VTM/PerkinElmer pipeline.

“This study is a comparison between a research laboratory and a public health technique for measuring SARS-CoV-2 in the environment,” Dr Knight said. “Although the VTM/Perkin Elmer pipeline is less sensitive, it was still useful to use in surface sampling programs such as the Safer at School Early Alert (SASEA) program. public health already have for clinical testing can be used to test environmental surfaces as well This is going to be very useful and applicable in public health labs as a surveillance method for schools and other settings where you need to detect the virus that causes COVID without having to administer a clinical test.

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Florida. – Tyndall’s rebuilding effort gains momentum with a series of military new construction awards (MILCON).


Since April, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded seven new contracts, bringing the Natural Disaster Recovery Division closer to the Air Force Civil Engineering Center midway through the rebuilding process of five at seven years old.



April to May 2022 Tyndall Rebuild MILCON Prize:

• April 13 – Small Arms Firing Range Facility
• April 29 – Site development, utilities and demolition phases 1 and 2
• May 6 — Tyndall and Airey Gate Complexes
• May 10 – F-35 Installations
• May 11: Marina and Outdoor Recreation for Morale, Wellness and Recreation (MWR)
• May 25 — Operations Support Squadron/Radar Approach Control Center (OSS/RAPCON) and Special Purpose Vehicle Maintenance Facility
• May 26 — MWR Sports Complex and Pool





















“By the end of July, we should see refueling vehicle maintenance and Area 1 F-35 flight line facilities kick off.” said Col. Travis Leighton, NDR Division Chief. “We expect to award at least nine more projects this summer and launch several previously awarded projects before the end of the year.”


The recently awarded Utilities Infrastructure Site Development Project is the second largest MILCON award for Tyndall’s reconstruction to date. This $567 million effort includes a $357.9 million project awarded to The Lane Construction Corporation. Lane will be directly supported by current privatized utility providers at Tyndall to provide a network of roads and utility systems to connect approximately 120 new and 260 refurbished facilities at Tyndall, said division project manager Ken Webb. AFCEC NDR.



“They will design and build new utilities and infrastructure for all current and future core facilities,” Webb said. “This is a complex project that requires effective planning and coordination between the Air Force, the general contractor and the owners of the utility privatization system.”

The NDR Division’s Tyndall Program Management Office oversees over 40 new MILCON projects spanning 12 areas. The utilities infrastructure is part of Zone 4, which also includes three entry control facilities: the Commercial Gate Complex, which was awarded on September 8, 2021 to EMR, Inc., and the Tyndall and Airey Gates on May 6, 2022, to BL Harbert International, LLC.


Utilities infrastructure includes over 24 miles of electrical, nine miles of communications systems, seven miles of potable water, six miles of stormwater, four miles of natural gas and two miles of waste treatment infrastructure. waste. Real estate experts from AFCEC, USACE and the Defense Logistics Agency coordinated with utility system owners to make additional improvements to ensure reliable utility services through existing service contracts. System owners will construct new primary power, potable water and natural gas lines, while MILCON contractors will coordinate the connection.


The Zone 4 infrastructure will also provide more than 31 acres of road networks designed with Airmen and families in mind, Leighton said.


“We provide infrastructure that supports a more pedestrian-friendly facility, better circulation, and a corridor connecting the support side to the airside of the facility,” Leighton said.


Other upgrades include roundabouts to improve traffic flow and reduce emissions, a more flexible and resilient communications system, and a consolidated pumphouse with a million-gallon water storage tank for the F- 35 and flight line fire and emergency services.


“Since it’s all happening at once, we have the option of building a fire suppression pump station with a tank large enough to support all the hangars in the flight line,” Webb said. “It’s more economical and efficient for critical installations.”


On May 6, the USACE awarded the final Area 4 contract to BL Harbert International, LLC to construct the Tyndall and Airey Entry Control Facilities. The $42.8 million project includes gates and lanes, canopies, watch posts, barrier systems and roadway serpentines.


The Tyndall PMO is working with the City of Panama City and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on separate improvement projects that support Tyndall’s infrastructure, Webb said.


For example, FDOT is managing two road improvements that will separate core traffic from through traffic. An overpass will elevate traffic lanes above base entry control facilities and an underpass will allow base travelers to travel from the support side of the base to the flight line side without exiting the base. facility.


Both FDOT projects will increase base security and efficiency, said Major Jordan Criss, commander of the 325th Security Forces Squadron.


“The Highway 98 overpass will properly redirect traffic and reduce heavier traffic flows to get to the facility,” Criss said. “The Louisiana Underpass will provide a direct connection to personnel traveling through the base and, if necessary, allow us to close flight line doors and maintain secure access.”


Equally important to the utility and flight line facilities of the facility of the future are morale, wellness and recreation projects that will directly affect the quality of life of Airmen and families, said Peter. Sartori, project manager of the AFCEC NDR division.


The first MWR project will revitalize the 325th Force Support Squadron’s outdoor recreation offerings with a new MWR Marina and Outdoor Recreation Center. Costing a total of $53 million, the two-story facility includes a ground-level warehouse and restaurant, a multi-purpose recreation room, outdoor seating and a second-level observation deck.


The second project awarded for MWR will provide a new sports complex with three softball fields, a baseball field and a recreation building as well as a new outdoor swimming pool with a water park, playground and bathhouse.


“These facilities will enhance the lives of Tyndall Airmen and families while increasing their fitness, resilience and readiness by providing physically active and relaxing recreational activities,” Sartori said.


Despite upcoming construction activity, Tyndall planners said they were working on solutions to keep traffic delays at the gates to a minimum. Criss said both gates will remain fully operational.

Google was ordered to pay the former New South Wales Vice Prime Minister John Barilaro $715,000 following a defamation lawsuit over two YouTube videos made by comedian Friendlyjordies.

The Federal Court issued the ruling this morning after Barilaro sued Google for a ‘relentless, racist, defamatory, abusive and defamatory campaign’ waged against him on YouTube for more than a year until his resignation as vice -Prime Minister in October 2021.

The two offending videos Bruz and secret dictatorship were created by Jordan Shanks, known online as Friendlyjordies.

Former NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro has won his case against Google. (Dominique Lorimer)

Judge Steven Rares found that Google “made a considered decision” to keep the videos online, even after Barilaro complained about them as encouraging bullying and harassment for profit.

Google owns YouTube, which is its second most visited site.

“Google encouraged and facilitated Mr. Shanks in its vitriolic, obsessive, hate-filled cyberbullying and harassment of Mr. Barilaro before and after Mr. Shanks settled the defamation lawsuits against him,” the judgment reads.

“He did it for his commercial gain.

Rares further discovered that the videos caused a traumatized Barilaro to end his career.

“The publication by Google of the facts denounced prematurely expelled Mr. Barilaro from the service he had chosen in public life and considerably traumatized him”, indicates the judgment.

Jordan Shanks apologized to Barliaro in court. (The Sydney Morning Herald)

“Google cannot escape liability for the substantial damage caused by Mr. Shanks’ campaign.

“He needed YouTube to spread his poison.

“Google was prepared to join Mr. Shanks in generating revenue as part of its business model.

“He did so without regard to acting as a responsible or reasonable editor, who in fact intended to apply his policies to Mr. Shanks’ campaign, would have acted.”

The judgment further found that Google had no defense to Barilaro’s defamation allegations and dragged the case with defenses “that had no chance of succeeding, causing Mr. Barilaro additional distress, damages to his reputation and a delay in his justification”.

Barilaro was awarded $675,000 and an additional $40,000 in prejudgment interest.

The confirmation that Jordan Peele’s Nope is about an alien invasion hints that the movie has a much bigger twist up its sleeve.

A TV spot for Jordan Peele’s Nope eventually confirmed that the story involves an alien invasion, hinting that it has a much bigger twist. The horror genre has seen great success in recent years thanks to sequels, reboots, “requels”, adaptations of other works and original stories, as well as the rise of some filmmakers in this genre. gender. Among these is Jordan Peele, who successfully transitioned from acclaimed comedy actor to one of the most respected horror filmmakers.

Peele’s first film was get out set in 2017, the story of a young black man who uncovers a disturbing secret when he meets his white girlfriend’s family. get out was a critical and commercial success, allowing Peele to continue telling horror stories that deal with different social issues, and his next project was Wereleased in 2019. After hosting the third revival of The twilight zonePeele is back with his third horror film, Nopewhich has given way to a variety of theories about its story, its themes, and the great threat the main characters will face.

VIDEO OF THE DAY

Related: Jordan Peele’s Nope Story Could Be Spoiled By A Cult 1990s Sci-Fi Movie

Although trailers, teasers and TV spots for Nope have already been released, the plot details are still mostly a mystery. What do we know of Nope is that it follows Jill (Keke Palmer) and James Haywood (Daniel Kaluuya), the owners of Haywood Ranch in California. Along with the residents of this isolated town, Jill and James will witness a mysterious and anomalous supernatural event described by Peele as a “in other words confrontation”. Now, after a lot of speculation and a bunch of theories about Nope Regarding aliens, a TV spot confirmed this by showing an alien UFO over Haywood Ranch – but if that big plot detail has already been revealed, it could hint at an even bigger twist to come. Nope.


There have been many theories around Nopemost of them regarding the Haywoods encountering aliens and the title of the film being an acronym for “Not Of Planet Earth”, but now that the alien invasion has been confirmed, Nope surely has something else up its sleeve. Peele has been incredibly secretive with the plots of his films, because both get out and We had major twists that obviously couldn’t be revealed or casually alluded to in promotional material, so if Nope has already confirmed the bigger story theory, it’s because there’s a bigger twist to come, most likely related to why the aliens are specifically targeting Haywood Ranch. Some theories about Nope suggest that the Haywoods are in fact aliens who escaped from their planet, and that their fellow aliens are now ready to take them back, while others believe NopeThe social commentary of will be the refugees and the exploitation of immigrant workers, the foreigners representing refugees and illegal immigrants, and the element of horror coming from the reaction of the townspeople upon their arrival.


These theories seem possible given how Peele has shown in his previous films that you can’t really trust anyone, and that characters who may seem good and the heroes of the story may actually be the real threats. Confirmation of Nope talking about an alien invasion shouldn’t put viewers off watching the movie as it’s certainly not a spoiler or “too revealing”, and instead it only shows that Jordan Peele has something more up his sleeve. great to surprise the audience.

Eric Adams says yes to city property development – if only the council could agree https://troydeltachi.org/eric-adams-says-yes-to-city-property-development-if-only-the-council-could-agree/ Thu, 02 Jun 2022 00:17:00 +0000 https://troydeltachi.org/eric-adams-says-yes-to-city-property-development-if-only-the-council-could-agree/ A day after developers scrapped plans for an ambitious Harlem real estate project rather than face defeat on city council, Mayor Eric Adams has proposed sweeping changes to the city’s zoning rules aimed at spurring more housing and jobs – changes that will require careful council approval.

A day after developers scrapped plans for an ambitious Harlem real estate project rather than face defeat on city council, Mayor Eric Adams has proposed sweeping changes to the city’s zoning rules aimed at spurring more housing and jobs – changes that will require careful council approval.

In remarks Wednesday morning to the Association for a Better New York, a network of city actors, Adams touted a “yes city,” where local officials and voters will embrace development rather than fight it.

“We want New Yorkers to stay here, put down roots and start families. We want to continue to welcome immigrants and young people looking for opportunities,” Adams said. “We are looking to change the rules and allow a wider range of housing types and sizes to accommodate all kinds of households across the city.”

The mayor’s office summarized three concepts for amendments to the city’s zoning code, which sets the ground rules for real estate development. One would be intended to stimulate economic growth, another to encourage more housing, and the last to facilitate “carbon neutral” public works such as energy storage.

Adams also spoke of broader reforms to encourage needed development, from electric car charging stations to converting empty office space into housing, or helping a restaurant expand without going through bureaucratic zoning changes.

His proposal would further remove the last vestiges of New York’s restrictive “cabaret law,” which restricts dancing to certain permitted nightlife venues.

“Think of the owner of a tapas bar who has live music on the weekends and wants to reserve a small space for dancing, but finds that according to city rules it is not allowed. We’re going to turn that no into a yes and let people dance,” Adams said.

“Zero Carbon”

Notably absent from Adams’ “City of Yes” email announcement was his key partner in approving any upcoming zoning changes: City Council President Adrienne Adams. Revisions to the code must go through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure, or ULURP, which gives the council a deciding vote.

Speaker Adrienne Adams speaks at City Hall about the Council’s proposed budget, April 25, 2022.

On Wednesday, Adams said she was unaware of the proposed zoning changes, but supported creating more housing — if it can be done in a way that is embraced by the public.

“Anything that is going to benefit positively and amicably the increase in housing in this city, we will definitely take a look at it and work with the mayor to make it happen,” she told THE CITY during the interview. an unrelated bill signing.

Only one council member, Manhattan Democrat Keith Powers, signed Adams’ proposal on Wednesday, making a statement that joked about the cabaret law’s hoped-for demise: “It’s a big dance, dance, resolution. ”

Adams mentioned other Council members during his speech, including Crystal Hudson and Chi Osse of Brooklyn, who represent a strip of Atlantic Avenue the mayor hopes to change.

A spokesperson for the speaker said Council had approved land use decisions that created around 1,122 affordable apartments out of 1,839 new units built.

Public engagement on the proposals will begin immediately, Planning Commission Chairman Daniel Garodnick told THE CITY, with economic modifications starting ULURP by mid-2023 and housing modification starting in beginning of 2024. The zero carbon plan will begin in early 2023, with a smooth transition path expected.

“We think we have a lot of support early on, and there are members who have pushed through similar initiatives, and we think they’ll be popular,” Garodnick told THE CITY. “We will do our job to secure his approval.”

A new life for offices

Mayor Adams’ concepts are aimed at helping New York City recover from the pandemic, which has killed more than 40,000 people across the five boroughs.

The city’s population plummeted during COVID and likely continued to decline, according to census and other data. The main driver of population loss has been the movement of people to other states, with contributions from COVID deaths and fewer immigrants.

Market-priced apartment rents, especially in transit-rich neighborhoods, have soared, with reports of crowded open houses and bidding wars.

Still, Manhattan’s commercial and business districts have struggled, with office occupancy below 40%, according to Kastle Systems. A longer-term decline in demand for office space could create an opportunity to create more housing, Adams pointed out in his remarks – and found a welcome reception.

“We have to find ways to reuse and adapt,” said Mitch Korbey, a land use and zoning attorney at Herrick, Feinstein, who watched the speech.

“The idea that buildings can have a second and a third life, isn’t that a good thing? »

Midtown Manhattan office buildings, June 1, 2022.

The mayor’s embrace of a “yes in my backyard” approach is the hallmark of some advocates who have called for more rezoning and the construction of more housing across the city, including in more neighborhoods. rich like SoHo and NoHo in Manhattan.

“We’re really excited about this plan, we’re really excited about the mayor embracing the ‘yes in my backyard’ language that has been a keystone of our organization,” said Logan Phares, Open Group Policy Director. New York. , which is pushing for more housing across the city. The term is a game about “not in my backyard”, or NIMBY, an epithet long meant for opponents of development.

“We’re really happy to see the administration making this a priority and coming up with some really great ideas in terms of first steps on the broader, citywide approach we need to address this crisis.”

Development defeated

Less clear is Eric Adams’ journey through a city council that has long shown a willingness to derail real estate projects – even one that promised to deliver 50% affordable housing, as happened this week with the One45 megadevelopment in Harlem.

On Tuesday, the team behind One45 dropped its rezoning request before it was deliberated by the council’s zoning subcommittee or the full council, Patch first reported. Ward council member Kristen Richardson Jordan has long opposed the plan, which had also been recommended for disapproval by Community Board 10.

The One45 development project site along Lenox Avenue in Harlem was vacant on June 1, 2022.

It is customary for local council members to dictate what happens in their districts and for other members to follow their co-worker’s lead, which has prompted many developers over the years to withdraw their projects in hopes of to try again, rather than being rejected.

Among the rezonings shot down due to objections from local members were an expansion of the manufacturing and lifestyle complex at Industry City in Brooklyn and a mixed-use housing development replacing the former Long Island College Hospital in the same borough – which now consists entirely of luxury condos.

One45 developer Bruce Teitelbaum told THE CITY last month that he plans to add more affordable housing to the 363ft towers. He and his partners eventually offered to make half of the 915 apartments affordable, according to Patch. Teitelbaum declined to comment to THE CITY about the withdrawal of the ULURP project this week.

A spokesperson for the speaker said developers lacked the necessary city-backed funding to secure 50% affordable housing – offering 35% affordable housing in the proposal.

Depending on existing zoning, self-storage or market-priced condos could appear on the site, a source familiar with the plans told Patch.

Richardson Jordan wrote Monday that developers should consider “contextualized housing” for Harlem. The proposed One45 was mostly made up of studios and one-bedroom apartments – and the area needed more places for families, she wrote. She also raised concerns about community engagement, future traffic and overcrowded subways.

“The demand for housing is too high for a free and open market,” she wrote. “People will be displaced before housing becomes affordable enough. Approval of projects like these will make the housing crisis worse.

She did not respond to a message from THE CITY.

Garodnick told THE CITY that the proposed citywide changes could make it easier to build more housing.

“The mayor said it well when he said we need housing everywhere to cope with the moment,” he said. “These proposals are going to be city-wide and sweeping and not subject to member discretion.”
