Comptrollers oppose plans for platform

Both the city and state comptrollers of New York have announced their opposition to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s plans to use its $833 million surplus to build a platform over its far West Side rail yards and then sell a developer the right to build commercial and residential buildings on the platform. The comptrollers said the idea would be too risky for the MTA, and instead recommended that the MTA hold a competition among developers, who would build the platform as part of their proposals. more [NYT]
