State officials Thursday afternoon announced that Robin Stout has been named president of the Moynihan Station Development Corporation, the government body behind the renovation of the Farley Post Office on Eighth Avenue into a major transit and commercial hub. Stout had spent four years negotiating leases for the Empire State Development Corporation’s 42nd Street Development Project, working on deals like the New York Times headquarters near the Port Authority Bus Terminal and the Bank of America Tower in Midtown. He’s also worked recently as the legal counsel for the ESDC’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Expansion Project. The Moynihan Station is expected to open in 2010, and will cost an estimated $818 million to build.
