This HIA addressed a proposal to demolish an older apartment building with over 360 rent-controlled units, and replace them with 1,400 market-rate condominiums. The analysis concluded that displacing current residents could have serious adverse health effects, such as increasing food insecurity and hunger, mental health problems, and the risk of homelessness (which has implications for many health issues such as safety, mental health, and infections like tuberculosis.

Ultimately, the HIA contributed to the developer's decision to implement an alternative that allowed the current residents to remain, and provided 360 permanently rent-controlled units.
