From the archives: Mayoral candidates get candid

A side-by-side look at where NYC’s mayoral wannabes stood on real estate’s key issues

Perhaps no mayor in recent history has taken such delight in shaping New York as Michael Bloomberg. Indeed, he rezoned over a third of the city, while developers added a staggering 40,000 new buildings since he took office, according to an analysis of census data by the New York Times. But whether developers — and the real estate industry as a whole — can count on having an ally in City Hall once Bloomberg’s 12-year reign ends in January remains to be seen.

As the race to replace him moves into the homestretch — this month voters will go to the polls to cast ballots in the long-anticipated Democratic and Republican mayoral primaries — The Real Deal talked to some of the leading candidates on both sides of the political aisle. (Bill Thompson is the only major candidate who did not participate).

Below is a side-by-side look at where the candidates stand on key real estate issues, including rezonings, air rights and tax breaks. Read the full story from our September 2013 issue here.
