ATLANTIC YDS. FOES MISS SHOT
NY POST MISSES POINT - Forest City Ratner wanted this case to be heard before summer, but the appellate court delayed arguments until the September Term, which is actually good for Atlantic Yards 'foes'. You can read the real story on Atlantic Yards Report.
An appellate court yesterday agreed to speed things along for the perennially bogged-down Atlantic Yards project - Brooklyn's largest-ever development.
Developer Bruce Ratner had complained legal delays are creating funding woes for his ambitious $4 billion plan - and an appeals panel ordered opponents in the "Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn" group to be ready with their arguments for the September term.
The appeal had been set to be in February 2009; Ratner wanted it heard this May.
