Battle For Kingsbridge Armory Gets Interesting

Dan Beekman of the New York Daily News just reported on two developers vying for an opportunity to transform the old Kingsbridge Armory – and both options would put the Bronx, yet again, on the world map.
One option would create the world’s largest ice sports center and the other would create the tallest indoor climbing wall on earth. Either option seems far better than another Related snowjob who wanted to turn the armory into a shopping mall while not paying workers a decent living wage. Both current developers say they are committed to paying living wages and interestingly enough, both have said they can raise their own capital without the use of government subsidies. Beekman reports that the city is carefully vetting their claims.
