Well, This Should Be Interesting ....

The Bronx Chamber of Commerce just sent out a release announcing honorees for their Oct. 1 banquet.

The Related Companies, which wants to redevelop the Kingsbridge Armory, is receiving the "Visionary Award," presumably for their work on the Gateway Mall just south of Yankee Stadium.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz will be a special guest. Diaz recently recommended that the City Planning Commission vote against Related's proposal to the Armory into a shopping mall, primarily because there's no Community Benefits Agreement was in place.

Last night at Fernando Cabrera's "victory" party at Maestro's (there is still some recounting to do as previous reported), Diaz told us he hasn't heard anything from Related and that there's been no dialogue. Well, maybe there will be some dialogue at the banquet.

Should be interesting ...
