Hudson Yards to be built by California developer

From the Daily News:

THE DEVELOPER of the Hudson Yards project is bringing in an out-of-town construction giant to build the massive development.

Related Companies hired California-based firm Tutor Perini for the $4 billion West Side project, Crain’s New York reported.

Related officials wanted to slash costs and were unhappy with the terms of deals worked out this summer between city contractors and construction unions, according to Crain’s.

The move is a blow to the city’s big construction companies, which had hoped to score the contract for the sprawling 15-year project.

I am only too happy that the NYC-based contractors and construction unions are getting screwed. They never cared about local neighborhoods when they and their bought politicians ran through these massive projects. Only fair that they must sit on the sidelines.
