Judge halts Willets West project

willets10q-2-webPlans for a mega-mall on part of the Citi Field parking lot took a hit yesterday, as a judge ruled that the developers of Willets West would have to seek approval for the project from the state.

The private project, which included a “mega-mall” and was touted as necessary to finance the larger Willets Point redevelopment, would have technically been constructed on parkland. Approval from the state legislature is necessary to give public land to a private entity.
