administration and what it might mean for the building
industry from his early staff appointments.
"From doing more to protect tenants in troubled buildings," said de Blasio in a statement announcing his appointments, "to innovating
new partnerships with the private sector, to forging a new relationship with our
NYCHA communities, every decision we make will focus on maximizing the
affordability of our neighborhoods."
Key Housing Leadership Positions
Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development
Glen will oversee the city's housing policy. During her 12 years as head of the
urban investment group at Goldman Sachs, she invested more than $3 billion
to build 2 million square feet of commercial and retail space, 1.3 million square
feet of community space and 13,000 housing units nationwide.
Glen served Mayor Bloomberg as assistant commissioner for housing ﬁ nance
at HPD, where she oversaw ﬁnancing of low-income housing units. According
to Crain's New York Business, "the new mayor's goal of creating and preserving
200,000 units of affordable housing will depend on her ability to streamline the
approval of new construction projects, as well as better facilitate coordination
between the various city agencies that oversee development."
