    Episode 050 – Freedom Plaza Manhattan – Why we need this NOW

    Episode 050 – Freedom Plaza Manhattan – Why we need this NOW

    Whether you are a NIMBY or a YIMBY, you’ll still agree that increasing the options for housing, hospitality, entertainment, historical exhibits and open space will economically stimulate a local economy.



    Enter Freedom Plaza, a visionary project by the Soloviev Group, spearheaded by Stefan Soloviev, Chairman, and CEO Michael Hershman.



    Just south of the United Nations on the East River in Manhattan, Freedom Plaza, would not only generate quite a pot of money for NYC and NY State but add much needed rental housing of which 38% will be affordable. Bonus? It would pay for and support itself while providing many other perks for the local community.



    Enjoy this candid conversation with Michael on episode 50 of Realty Speak.
