The Rail Yards development process could be on the verge of an important milestone, which comes as a surprise to many who assumed this process would be slowed in the wake of economic uncertainty and the recent shakeup in State government.

Also in the running is a joint venture by the Durst Organization and Vornado Realty Trust.
