Melanie Meyers speaks with Real Estate Bisnow about public-private partnerships

Real Estate Bisnow notes New York real estate partner Melanie Meyers' participation as a panelist at the publication's upcoming event, "Public-Private Partnerships: Process, Plans and Opportunities," on February 24, 2010. Commenting on public-private partnerships, Ms. Meyers stated "New York City's infrastructure and capital needs have reached a critical point, and the industry should expect to see more private-public relationships in development over the next five to ten years." Ms. Meyers also noted that "projects like Atlantic Yards demonstrate how public-private partnerships can work to address both economic development goals and public capital needs, including affordable housing, open space, transit, and utility improvements. The challenge is figuring out what developers need to be encouraged to go forward with projects, and how the projects can contribute to City resources."
