NYC Islamic center, utility in dispute over rentNYC Islamic center, utility in dispute over $1.7M in rent that center is accused of owing
NEW YORK (AP) ' The developer of an Islamic cultural center near the World Trade Center site and the owner of the building are in a dispute over rent.
Consolidated Edison owns part of a site that the Park51 developers want to use for the center. The utility says that after an appraisal, the rent for that part has gone up, and now Park51 owes $1.7 million in back rent.
Park51 has not responded to an email seeking comment, but in court papers disputed the figure. The developer says Con Ed is using an incorrect formula to determine the rent and back payments owed.
A court date in connection to the dispute is scheduled for November.
