A group of Bronx Terminal Market vendors is trying to block the Related Companies’ plans to build a $394 million, 1-million-square-foot shopping mall on the site of the market. The group of vendors plans to file a motion in court next week seeking to nullify the lease for the site between the city and Related because the group thinks the 63-month lease signed last year violated the City Charter by bypassing normal land-use processes and by not being open for bidding. Related has said construction on the shopping mall could begin in 2006. more [Sun]
