Neil B. Garfinkel Says Approval of Revived 421-a Agreement Will Benefit Real Estate Industry

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Neil B. Garfinkel, Managing Partner, Abrams Garfinkel Margolis Bergson, LLP (AGMB), says the revival of the 421-a program will benefit the New York City real estate market by allowing more affordable housing to be built while allowing developers to receive tax breaks.

On November 10, Governor Andrew Cuomo worked out a deal between the Real Estate Board of New York and the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York to bring back the 421-a program. As part of the agreement, construction workers in Manhattan working on projects containing 300 or more rental units would be paid $60 an hour plus benefits, while those working along the waterfront sections of Brooklyn and Queens would receive $45 an hour. Developers, meanwhile, would be given property tax relief on their buildings for 35 years; however, they would have to set aside the units for lower-income residents.

“We are glad to see the 421-a program come back again,” Mr. Garfinkel says. “The tax breaks will provide an incentive for developers to construct more apartments that New York City residents will finally be able to afford. This will mean a surge in construction, which will greatly benefit the real estate industry.”

Mr. Garfinkel is the Partner in Charge of AGMB’s Real Estate and Banking Practices. He concentrates his practice in the areas of commercial and residential real estate, banking and lending law. His clients include national and international banks, mortgage bankers, real estate brokers, developers, title companies and purchasers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate. 

He serves as Broker Counsel to the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY) and hosts the REBNY Legal Line, a daily legal hotline provided exclusively for REBNY members. Through his affiliation and participation with REBNY, he provides counsel on fair housing matters, commission disputes, licensing and disclosure requirements, agency issues, employment and wage laws, strategic alliances and affiliated business relationships and disciplinary actions instituted by governmental entities.

In addition, Mr. Garfinkel serves as Counsel to the Empire State Mortgage Bankers Association. He is a Diamond Member of the New York Association of Mortgage Brokers and is a member of the Community Mortgage Bankers Forum, the Mortgage Bankers Association of New York and the National Association of Mortgage Brokers.
