Check out the above rendering. We got it on Monday afternoon at a press conference to tout the deal struck this weekend between the Related Companies and the M.T.A. over the development rights of the West Side rail yards.
Look closely. An old rendering, from Related’s original rail yards bid in November, featured a sign above the concert stage that read “myspace.com”. It was, of course, a reference to then-anchor tenant News Corp., owner of MySpace.
Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. dropped out of Related’s bid in March. And, so, Related, on its second go-round, has dropped News Corp. from its rendering.
