The Daily News on the show before the show at yesterday’s council hearing. Jump to the end for the real story:
The inside word is that it will have to go through some modifications but is expected to eventually pass, with or without [Vito] Lopez’ backing. Mayor Bloomberg has strongly supported the development.
Negotiation and modification is the name of the game when land-use items reach the Council (viz. Rose Plaza, Greenpoint/Williamsburg 2005 rezoning). But right now, there are no negotiations happening, which has a lot of people frustrated. Is that because Domino is refusing to come to the table or because Domino doesn’t know who to sit down with?.
