This is a terrible bill. Raising the minimum wage citywide would be one thing, probably a great idea. But imposing a minimum wage only on certain city-financed projects will just make it more expensive for the city to finance its own projects, and drive down interest from potential tenants. It's just government shooting itself in the foot.
