After a last-ditch effort to get their West Side Rail Yards negotiations back on track after Thursday's announcement
, Tishman Speyer was unable to sway the MTA.
The MTA's statement
today was short and sweet. In its entirety:
"The MTA met today with Tishman Speyer. Despite the best efforts of both sides, a final agreement could not be reached. The MTA has now re-entered discussions with other interested developers and remains committed to timely development of these unique and valuable parcels of land on Manhattan's Far West Side."
It's widely believed that the most likely developer right now is the partnership of the Durst Organization and Vornado Realty Trust.
