"Under the Garodnick and Brewer proposal, owners of landmarked buildings could sell up to 4 million square feet in unused air rights to developers across the district at market rates."
Meanwhile, Dan apparently is NOT running for mayor, but has other positions in his sight:
"Some of his options, according to an earlier report from Politico, include state positions such as attorney general or state comptroller. The report said that the positions, currently held by Eric Schneiderman and Thomas Napoli, may become vacant if Governor Andrew Cuomo decides not to seek a third term."
Dan has a considerable warchest already, undoubtedly made ample by members of the REBNY:
"When Garodnick makes his next move, he would have considerable financial muscle to fund his bid. He has so far raised $1.5 million for his next campaign, with a fraction of the amount carrying over from his aborted run for the comptroller seat.
"According to campaign finance filings, the amount is split between three accounts. Two city campaign accounts, 'Garodnick 2013' and 'Garodnick 2017,' contain $888,000 and $202,000 respectively. Meanwhile, a state account under the name 'New Yorkers for Garodnick' contains $400,000."
Dan and his buddy Scott Stringer are a tag-team match, so expect Stringer to run for mayor.
