Yet another one:
"NYU and the consortium had bid for at least some of the $100-million the city offered but sought a different site, the 460,000-square-foot former headquarters of the New York City Transit Authority, at 370 Jay Street in Brooklyn. But as it did with the Roosevelt Island site—to the chagrin of Stanford University, which abruptly walked away from its bid, complaining that the city was being unfair—New York City exacted a price for the use of its property.
NYU will be responsible for up to $60-million of the costs of relocating police- and transit-authority equipment now housed in the building. NYU will also be expected to complete the renovation by the summer of 2017 and hold the first classes there by September of that year. The city said NYU would receive $15-million worth of unspecified 'benefits'to help offset its development costs in Brooklyn."
