What could possibly be the objection to saving NYCHA while providing tons of desperately needed new affordable housing units?

The Borough President is gonna sue NYCHA for every new building it's planning? (NYCHA is planning tens of thousands of new units on its land, which is basically the only way it survives).
She's gonna sue everybody. She's had it with these damned skyscrapers! And in Manhattan of all places. The NIMBYism in New York has made getting almost anything done a major headache, almost not worth dealing with. It's getting out of hand, and will push this city back into the dark days if left unchecked.
NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
