NEW YORK (AP) - First, Jared Kushner's big plans for a skyscraper in Manhattan fell apart. Now, it's the turn of his major twin-tower project across the river in New Jersey.
Plans for a pair of gleaming, 66-story residential towers in Jersey City championed by Kushner when he was CEO of his family company are in danger of collapsing amid a heated exchange of letters and emails with the city.
The Kushner Cos. is now making veiled threats of legal action. It is saying the heavily Democratic city, run by Mayor Steven Fulop, ended negotiations over the project for no good reason, other than perhaps bias against Kushner because he has moved on to become an adviser to President Donald Trump, his father-in-law.
"It is crystal clear that Fulop is now playing politics," Kushner Cos. said in a statement to The Associated Press.http://www.philly.com/philly/news/new ... 446cb4f48f4bcdda023e.html
