IMMIGRANTS RIGHTS GROUP SPARS WITH KINGSTONIAN PROJECT DEVELOPERS OVER RENTS

 

“An immigrant rights group that successfully advocated for city municipal identification cards for undocumented immigrants is strongly opposing the mixed-use Kingstonian project planned for Uptown.

The group, Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson, had drawn support for the ID program from Mayor Steve Noble, whose administration, along with the developers, was successful in securing $3.8 million in state funding related to the Kingstonian project.

“The Kingstonian is a luxury development that will lead to increasing rents and evictions across the city,” said Jonathan Bix, executive director of Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson, which has an office in Midtown. “The Kingstonian is not in the interest of the majority of Kingston residents: working people.” Bix said the interest of immigrants are not served well by the development.”
