It's actually kind of an interesting question. The lower bands may find themselves unable to do anything but tolerate NYCHA-level service, but a person paying $2700/mo. for a 1-bed will probably walk if there are prolonged heating outages, accidents with unsafe elevators, and the like. Will that semi-market pressure have any effect? Will they hire a separate management company for these buildings (would make sense)?

I may very well pass. I don’t want to pay that much for a NYCHA development.
I still can’t get over this article:

I guess part of it will depend on their exact placement with respect to the actual Houses. I don't mind having them as neighbors, but if there's poor maintenance, sanitation, and security by NYCHA at the Houses it could spill over to affect quality of life at the new buildings. Rats certainly travel. Piles of garbage are visible a long way off. Etc.

People really know how to run down a building. I do hope they hire a separate management company to keep up with things - it would suck to see a brand new building turn to shambles...

Yeah, and I'm sorry to say, but the residents themselves can also be part of the problem. Some people throw garbage and food out the window. Rats are creatures of habit. They will only come back if they know there is food.

@stormgal - I have seen and read stories of how people neglect the property... I’m sure it will be fine in the beginning because it’s so new but a few years down the line is another story.

Let the games begin!

Let's not act like it's some tendency PJ tenants and only PJ tenants possess to live like messes. It will be interesting to see what happens.
