The NY Observer reported yesterday that the City Council would be making a decision on developer Sheldon Solow’s plans for development of the former ConEdison properties on the East River waterfront tomorrow.  However, this decision has been postponed.

Negotiations continue between Solow and City Council Member Daniel Garodnick.  Among the main points of contention are the use of a proposed office tower (the community wants residential instead), and the creation of a public waterfront park.  Could this mean that the Council could be planning to disprove the development?  Well, as the Observer points out, “While many developers drop out of the land-use process before it reaches the Council… few, if any, have been handed a ‘no’ vote by the Council.”
