The New York Daily News reports under the current plan of the New York Jets' new stadium, a platform must be built over the rail yards in order for development. While Cablevision has offered the MTA $400 million for the land, they plan to spend $350 million to build the platform necessary for development. The Jets originally offered $100 million and have now raised their offer to $280 million in real money, despite the $720 million figure that continues to be tossed around. However, the platform building for the Jets would come at the taxpayer expense. The city would put up $300 million and the state would put up $300 million, which does not include the $150 million the city will also need to put up for pedestrian walkways and the "game porch" that will allow people to get into the stadium. Mayor Michael Bloomberg is pushing for the stadium to go through, as he is pushing to land the 2012
Also ESPN bottom line is reporting the Transportation authority has approved the bid...... Does this mean they have the land and Construction can start?
