Is this some kind of movement? 3rd attempt emerges to boot Citi Bike station from pedestrian space

An excerpt
...those grand plans would require relocating one section of the corner-hogging Citi Bike dock...closer to the commuter van pickup stop on Division Street. There is a curve in the road and allegedly space to accommodate the infrastructure (not on the sidewalk). The bike share company is not having it, though, and all but deflated those grassroots plans last week during the CB3 Transportation subcommittee meeting. As did the Department of Transportation.

To the story
First we learned of Hudson Square.  Sounds like a done deal. Then came came SoHo.  Now this in Two Bridges.
Confucius Plaza is not park space, according to the official city map, so it’s unclear to us how the outcome of the SoHo lawsuit might help or hinder the co-op building’s chances of moving the station.

You would expect Citi Bike to fight this vigorously. If the station is moved and replaces parking meters it must pay the city for the lost revenue.
