Special Feature: Overseas Projects 

In light of continued sluggishness in the U.S. market, some New York-area firms turn to overseas work to keep their local office staff busy. ENR New York will look at how firms are expanding their reach abroad while trying to keep staff stable at home. Our coverage will investigate the advantages and challenges of these strategies and spotlight several international projects that are helping keep local A/E/C firms working.

Project Focus:  Affordable/Multi-Family Housing 

Years after the residential bust, entrepreneurial developers find ways to push projects forward, particularly in the affordable housing sector. ENR New York will spotlight some of the projects that have continued to press on in a down market, including the revived $800-million 63-story MiMA tower at 450 West 42nd Street in Manhattan. The section will also include a profile of The Jonathan Rose Companies and their approach on such innovative sustainable affordable housing projects as Via Verde in the Bronx.
