New condo units submitted to the Attorney General’s office (a measure of projects first entering the development pipeline)
dropped 28 percent citywide from the year prior, already a dark time for new construction.

The total number of units in 2010 amounted to less than one tenth of the number of projects in the pipeline during the boom in 2006. Stalled construction sites also increased citywide. “Especially for the next 12 to 24 months, you’re still going to see
