Con Ed Site to Brooklyn Bridge Park; A Missed Opportunity

So ConEd ratepayers will get a $0.70 benefit (rebate? credit?) from the sale of this parcel in DUMBO to the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation.
I'd much rather they sold the land at a 50% discount and we skipped the condos in the park.  70 cents is not going to make a difference in ANYONE's life.  But maximizing the parkland would be a lasting benefit to the city as a whole.
As a ratepayer, I'd urge ConEd to donate the land, take the tax benefit, and give us a better Brooklyn Bridge Park.
