2021 BASE Blueprint for Basements Press Conference

The Basement Apartment Safe for Everyone (BASE) Campaign, along with allies in the city and state government, will unveil the BASE Campaign 2021 Blueprint for Basement Legalization on January 26, 2021 in a virtual press conference and policy briefing.

The BASE Campaign is a coalition of homeowners, tenants, community organizations, and housing policy professionals advocating for the legalization of safe and affordable basement apartments that are currently prohibited by New York City zoning and building codes. The city could potentially add over 100,000 safe and affordable units of housing through basement conversions.

The event will feature a panel of speakers who will discuss the platform as a response to the housing crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. It will also address the urgent need for elected officials and candidates running for office to adopt these policy positions and enact legislation that will expand the supply of safe and affordable housing through a citywide basement apartment conversion program.
