Atlantic Yards Consultant Bill Up to $4.8 Million

Same Firm Paid by City for Duffield Street/Underground RR StudyConsulting firm AKRF will receive $630,000 more for work it has done related to the Atlantic Yards project after a state development corporation vote Thursday, bringing the firm’s total contract for project-related work in the last 20 months to $4.8 million, the Brooklyn Eagle reports.

The same firm was paid $500,000 by the city’s Economic Development Corporation for its three-year study on the relationship between 19th century houses on Duffield Street and the Underground Railroad -- a study criticized by City Council members for, among other things, not hiring an archaeologist.
