Field Representative, at the opening of the Barrier Free Living Apartments.
On September 24, the Barrier Free Living Apartments opened their doors to families in need. The $42 million project in the Bronx consisted of two buildings containing 120 new apartments in a supportive environment. DASNY provided construction services to the project sponsor, the New York State Homeless Housing and Assistance Corporation. This project perfectly encapsulated the critical importance of what DASNY does: “every project and program we deliver has direct, tangible, and meaningful impacts on people all across the State.”
DASNY completes successful State Sales Tax Revenue Bond Issue
On October 22, DASNY closed on the sale of $936 million in New York State Sales Tax Revenue Bonds. The bonds were sold on a competitive basis in three tranches. This approach encourages aggressive bidding, resulting in favorable rates for the State. Standard & Poor’s assigned the Sales Tax Revenue Bonds their highest rating, AAA, while Fitch rated the bonds AA+. This was a new money deal to finance CUNY facilities, SUNY Upstate Community College facilities, Library Facilities grants, Dedicated Highway & Bridge Trust Fund projects, and transportation initiatives.
