What We Do
We use these assets to deliver results for NYC’s economy and communities by:

- Leasing and redeveloping: Disposing of property and port interests through leases and operator contracts to accomplish policy and financial goals
- Value capture: Extracting economic value from City assets in line with benchmarks to payback City and NYCEDC investments in the past and to support NYCEDC’s ongoing operations and policy priorities
- DBL operations: Developing and implementing double-bottom-line assets that provide annual cash flow while achieving immediate policy goals, including creating good jobs and strengthening neighborhoods for working families
