Hudson Yards Development Update

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the billion dollar real estate deal to develop the West Side Rail Yards is still alive reported NY1.

The MTA called off the deal with Tishman Speyer Properties to develop skyscrapers, apartments, and parks over the 26 acres of railroads along the Hudson River.

Negotiations ended over zoning disputes but the mayor says the disagreement is just a typical snag that big-money deals fall into.

Bloomberg said the 7 line will be extended to the West Side yards, and he's hopeful the zoning issues will be ironed out.

"I don't think it's the least bit fair or accurate to say that anything is dead. I think all of these things go through many cycles, there is an enormous amount of money at stake."

Bloomberg's comments were made from his trip to the United Kingdom today. He met with the new mayor of London, Boris Johnson to discuss transportation, education, traffic and crime-fighting.

    It just amazes me how nothing gets done in this city when it comes to public land. I not sure how or why the current state and the aesthetics makes sense to people over meaningful development.
