Hi Lee,
Were going to send an invite for a 10 AM conf call tomorrow to discuss the finer points of what you
describe and what the different parties involved might want to share publicly.
A quick clarification, as I mentioned, the developer will be the applicant for a rezoning of the site.
Thanks,
Rachaele

Happy New Year all:


Edith Hsu-Chen suggested that I reach out to you to start the discussion of how and when we release
news of the agreement between the City, Hudson River Park and the owners of the St Johns Terminal
Building. The agreement calls for:

the
the
the
the

developers to buy $100 million of development rights from Pier 40;


City to up-zone the site;
project to generate significant benefits, including 30 percent affordable housing (some of
affordable units reserved for seniors) and publicly accessible open space.

Most importantly, it keeps development off of Pier 40, while generating $ needed to save the pier.
We have been working with the Trusts pr team to think about how to break the news, and some of the
run-up stories that should be pitched. While I know there is a lot going on these daysI hope we can
grab a few minutes to discuss this. There is an added sense of urgency because the city and state
need to release the unredacted version of the MOU that was agreed to last year (following a FOIL
request from Andrew Berman), which will allow potential opponents to begin their negative drum beat
even before the project is announced (I believe we can get key stakeholders to support us at an
announcement).
Thanks
