Atlantic Yards holdout Daniel Goldstein, who as of yesterday morning was the last man standing in the way of developer Bruce Ratner’s massive Downtown Brooklyn project, has agreed to leave his three-bedroom Pacific Street condo by May 7 in exchange for a whopping $3 million. Goldstein, who must step down as the official spokesperson for Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn as part of the deal, bought the Prospect Heights apartment in 2003 for $590,000. The state had first offered him just $510,000 to vacate the premises. Ratner said Goldstein, facing eviction after losing a court battle over eminent domain, asked him for $5 million, though Goldstein denied it. Other condo owners in the building sold their homes to Ratner several years ago for around $1 million. Goldstein now plans to look for a new home in Park Slope, Fort Greene or Prospect Heights and to take a vacation, he told the Daily News. [NYDN]
