Having given no indication that she plans to remain the director of the New York City Planning Department if the next mayor wants her to stay on board, Amanda Burden is pushing through the final tasks of her tenure. The New York Times reported that these projects could affect the way New Yorkers live far down the line.

With just 19 months to go, Burden has a lot on her plate, including rezonings of West Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant and a stretch of Fordham Road in the Bronx. There’s also the proposed legislation intended to spur redevelopment of Office Space On Park Avenue and surrounding Grand Central Terminal, totaling millions of square feet in space. Even If she decides to step down, DOB will have rezoned roughly 40 percent of New York City under her watch.

During her tenure, Burden has helped transform the Brooklyn waterfront, the High Line park and the Hudson Yards neighborhood. [NYT]
