The Blue Lagoon condoport, which opened in 2016, has become a favorite among New Yorkers.
The 1,800-square-foot condominium has a rooftop pool and has an infinity pool, but the property is owned by the City of New York.
I’m not the first one to complain about the condo tower in question.
The Blue Lagoons condo complex is owned jointly by the Metropolitan Council and the city of New Orleans.
If you were to ask anyone who lived in the Blue Lagoons condominium complex, they would most likely answer with an incredulous shrug.
We’re not living in the future.
We’re in the present.
And when you look back at what the city has been doing in the past 10 years, it’s not great, according to Joe Hickey, the vice president of marketing and communications for the Metropolitan City Council.
In a city that is seeing record poverty rates, New Yorkers have struggled to afford to purchase a condominium.
And in New York City, where the median household income is just $52,000, condos can cost as much as $1.4 million.
The Blue Lagos tower, which is the tallest condominium in the city, was built in 2006.
It was designed by famed architect Frank Gehry and has been hailed by critics as one of the city’s most beautiful buildings.
But critics say the tower, in part, was designed to be a place for people to live out of.
“It’s an apartment complex, but it’s also a community,” Hickey said.
“It’s a place where people can live together and work together.
That’s the beauty of this building.”
The Metropolitan Council says the tower’s construction has caused displacement.
It has a long history of gentrification, Hickey says, noting that the building’s location in the historic Battery Park was designed for people who moved there for housing.
The developer has also pushed for a “living wage” for the city employees who live there.
Hickey says the Metropolitan council is working to address issues like the Blue Lagos condominium tower.
He says they are not opposed to the condo complex.
But he also says the council is committed to working with developers to bring more affordable housing to New York, and is working on an affordable housing ordinance.
There is another condominium that is currently being considered by the city.
It is located in Queens, but is located a little further north than the Blue Lakes, Hickeys said.
That condo, located in Crown Heights, is a two-story residential building with a pool.
It’s owned by a developer who says it is not an affordable unit, but Hickey points out that there are more than 100 apartments in the area.
It would be a good idea for the developers to make some changes to the building to accommodate more affordable units, Hiccys says.
