Full City Council approved the Bronx Terminal Market mall this afternoon. Charles Barron voted nay, Hiram Monserrate abstained.

Stanely Mayer, head of the merchants association at the market that will be displaced, would not give details but said the relocation deal is not yet final. Related is contributing only $7 a square foot, he said, but counting other sources, such as the city and the borough’s empowerment zone, merchants will receive $30 for each square foot they currently lease at the market as a buy-out.
