Instructions: Read the article clip below that details several aspects of this Bronx fire. Use the information to provide three (3) detailed bullet points that explain 3 different things that this incident reflects about the larger society. Landlords of Bronx Building Were Buying Up Affordable Housing in New York The companies purchased Twin Parks North West, the Bronx building where there was a deadly fire, along with seven other buildings in the borough for $166 million. By Amy Julia Harris (Links to an external site. ) and Matthew Haag (Links to an external site.) Jan. 12, 2022 The three companies that own the 19-story apartment building in the Bronx where a smoky blaze killed 17 people on Sunday have all been aggressively acquiring apartment complexes with many lower-income tenants who used rental vouchers. The three companies — LIHC Investment Group, Belveron Partners and Camber Property Group — purchased the building, Twin Parks North West, along with seven other affordable-housing buildings in the Bronx in 2019 for $166 million. LIHC and Belveron own buildings in New York and elsewhere, and control a combined 80 percent of the Bronx building, but it was Camber that was responsible for day-to-day operations. The fire was started by a space heater (Links to an external site.) that had been running for several days in the bedroom of a third-floor apartment, fire officials said. As residents fled, the apartment’s front door should have closed automatically but did not, allowing smoke to spread (Links to an external site.) and engulf the building. Officials are investigating if a maintenance issue with doors in the building contributed to the high death toll (Links to an external site.). One of Camber’s founders is Rick Gropper, who served as a housing adviser on Mayor Eric Adams’s transition team. After starting in 2016 with a six-unit property in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the company now owns more than 5,800 residential units, most of them in the city.
