Mayor Bill de Blasio will ask developers of the controversial Mount Manresa project if they'll sell the land to the city to turn it into a park.
The mayor was responding to a plea for campaigners at a town hall meeting in Staten Island Wednesday.
Loretta Drogon from the Committee to Save Mount Manresa asked him to find a way to turn the former Jesuit retreat house into a park instead of condos.
He promised to look into the possibility of purchasing the land from developer's the Savo Brothers — who bought it for $15 million.
"If there is any alternative, I may be the person who's in a position to do something," de Blasio said at the town hall.
"If you got someone who doesn’t want to sell, I don’t know what the options are. If you got someone who does want to sell, that’s a different discussion. So I will pledge you this one thing… we will make that inquiry and report back to you."
