From the article:
"CW Capital spokesperson Brian Moriarty said that the building owner
appreciated residents’ patience in waiting for the rent reductions. 'We
are pleased to have reached an agreement so we may put this chapter
behind us and focus on the rebuilding work that still remains,' he said. 'We are very proud of the hard work of our staff in the recovery effort
and look forward to returning to full capacity.'”
I don't live in any of the affected buildings, so it's up to their residents to decide if a one-time rent rebate is actually a win for services and facilities not provided for months and months.
BTW, here's a link to the TA page on what the TA was going for ("we feel that CWCapital must abate residents’ rents for the period that they were and are without basic services") and CW's response at the time ( “petty and mean spirited....tenants seek to transform these events into an opportunity to profit.”):
