Residents protested the alleged discrimination against affordable-housing tenants in 3333 Broadway, a giant housing development where many are now struggling to remain in residence.
The building is owned by a real estate firm, Urban American Management Corporation. “Urban American is committed to investing in this building and making sure people stay here in the long run,”
Joe DePlasco, a spokesperson for for the company, said last spring. “We have bought many buildings in awful areas, and invested significant dollar amounts in improving tenant life.” The firm could not be reached over the weekend after the rally took place.http://www.columbiaspectator.com/2009/09/28/residents-protest-affordable-housing-discrimination
