“The pair of major landlords waging a campaign against the Freedom Tower have been arguing publicly against the project without disclosing that they personally could lose millions of dollars a year if it is built.”

The New York Sun reports that developers Douglas Durst and Anthony Malkin could personally lose “millions of dollars a year” if the tower is built.

A spokesman for the Durst Organization said antenna revenue was not behind the company’s public campaign against it. He said Durst would like to see the Freedom Tower rebuilt, but redesigned and delayed, and he said revenue from broadcast antennas accounts for less than one-half of 1% of the Durst Organization’s total revenue.
