Month From GWB Terminal Opening Date, Fraction of Tenants Have Stores Ready

(DNAINFO)  Carolina Pichardo | March 15, 2017 — Less than a month remains before the long-delayed George Washington Bridge Terminal Market is finally slated to open — but 90 percent of the small business tenants slated to open inside will not have even been allowed to start construction by the time the terminal opens for business, DNAinfo New York has learned.

George Washington Bridge Redevelopment Venture LLC — a private development company overseeing the long-delayed redevelopment of the half-century-old terminal in conjunction with the Port Authority — has a labor clause that prohibits union construction workers who are building the terminal from having to work alongside the non-union laborers being employed by some of the small businesses, according to a source familiar with the project.
