Memoranda of Understanding - MOU
Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs) between:
Forest City Ratner (Bruce Ratner), The Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC, Charles Gargano) and the
New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC, Daniel Doctoroff, Andrew Alper)

These documents are non-binding agreements between the city, state and Forest City Ratner outlining the terms by which the state public corporation, the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC), would oversee the "Atlantic Yards" proposal. The documents, released 13 months after the proposal was unveiled in December 2003, are the first official documents concerning the project to be released. The MOUs verify that the state will oversee the project and override all local zoning. They also breakdown specifically and vaguely the public subsidies Fores City Ratner would receive. This document Anatomy of a Sweetheart Deal explains the MOU and breaks down the subsidies.
