Today was the day the Empire State Development Corporation was supposed to name the preferred developer for the Javits Convention Center hotel, a supposedly sought-after trophy that no one much ended up caring about. Even though there are but three bidders–Joseph Moinian, Gary Barnett and FaulknerUSA–agency spokesman A.J. Carter told The Real Estate it will be a little bit longer before the winner is announced.
“Responses to the RFP are still being evaluated,” he said. No new deadline has been set.
