Down to the Wire for the Armory Vote

Nothing new to report on the Kingsbridge Armory shopping mall negotiations, other than the fact that there is a stated City Council meeting scheduled for Monday morning at 11 a.m.

[Scroll down for all our coverage this week on the negotiations. It's a veritable Russian novel of Armory posts.]

Monday is the last day that the Council has to weigh in on the Armory proposal. At this point, it's any one's guess as to how this will end.

On one hand, the borough president, the retailers union and a coalition of strong community voices are telling the Bronx delegation to vote the project down. On the other hand, the mayor's office and several construction unions are pushing hard for this project to go through.

Will they take the deal or shut the project down and start over?

We'll see on Monday.

And, as always, stay tuned.
