Jonathan Landau and Long Island College Hospital

After several months of uncertainty and failed negotiations with the city, it looks like Fortis Property Group s Long Island College Hospital development won t include affordable housing after all.

The company s president, Joel Kestenbaum, told Politico that Fortis has decided to move forward with an as-of right redevelopment at the Cobble Hill site, saying that the option was more profitable than one that would have included affordable housing units. He hasn t provided specific plans, but previously revealed plans for an as-of-right development including 528,935 square feet of market-rate apartments. The affordable option included 900,000 square f上海千花网交友

eet of luxury housing and 225,000 square feet of affordable housing.

The decision is a blow to Mayor Bill de Blasio, who supported the affordable housing version after vehemently opposing the hospital s closure. The affordable housing option would ha爱上海
