Below are the two remaining top-ranked proposals to demolish and redevelop the notorious Liberty Square housing project in Liberty City (aka Pork & Beans.)
A committee voted on the proposals in the fall, with Related ranking highest with seven out of nine members, according to the Herald. One member who was ‘irked’ by Related Urban’s president gave Atlantic & Pacific an impossibly high score, and Related impossibly low, throwing off the process and requiring a new vote
Both proposals include market rate and subsidized housing, along with charter schools and retail. Related would seek to sell some of the townhouses to private owners, and add a museum.
Tweaked proposals are due next month for the final vote.
