  1.18     (iii) for which the contract provides for the construction 
  1.19  of the project upon land that is either owned by the authority 
  1.20  for redevelopment purposes or not owned by the authority at the

  1.22  conveyance or lease to the authority of the project or 
  1.23  improvements upon completion of construction;

  2.7      (3) in the case of any building in which at least 75
