Good that housing is being upgraded. Since major upgrading is happening, couldn’t the electricity also be upgraded to include better electricity to accommodate new utility requirements?
Great news. I’d like to see more projects like this.
Will the leases accommodate the rental price that the people that used to live here were used to paying.
Or are these going to be at market rate, non SROs that replace the people who lived in this community.
If Yimby really means more gentrification and raising the rents above low-income tenants I am not about it.
