Armory Bidder's Political Muscle on Display?

According to the New York Post, the Atlantic Development Group, one of the three bidders for the Kingsbridge Armory redevelopment project, got a Bronx councilwoman, Marial del Carmen Arroyo, to press city housing officials to withdraw their decision to award a housing redevelopment project to developer Gerald Migdol so Atlantic itself could get the job. Atlantic is not named in the lawsuit brought by Migdol against the city, but the Post said Migdol fingered Atlantic as the culprit.
Atlantic, owned by Peter Fine, has a controversial record of developing low-income housing around the city. The Norwood News profiled Fine, who has close ties to Bronx Democrats, and Atlantic last summer in this article.
