Ginder reiterated the importance of the project. “The ramifications not only to the city, but the parties that have worked for years on this, are huge,” he said.

Segal told reporters after the hearing that the only reason the city is involved with the project is because of the Ryan proposal.

Asked why the Port Authority is paying for part of the parking ramp, she said it was “one of the advantages. This actually is sort of a win-win situation where we are using some of the stadium resources to help financing for this Ryan development.”
