State Official: We're Driving Arena "Aggressively"

The head of New York's Empire State Development Corp. says that while the Atlantic Yards project "remains challenging", the state agency plans to "drive it aggressively". In remarks made April 8 but published Monday, Marisa Lago agreed the overall project is going to take time, so the ESDC is focusing on the Barclays Center and housing in Phase I. She wouldn't commit to a timetable, however.
