NEW YORK (AP) - A billionaire’s plan for a $250 million park and performing arts center on a New York City pier that collapsed because of litigation is being revived.

Media mogul Barry Diller said Wednesday that he will make “one last attempt” to build the park on Pier 55 on the Hudson River.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says foes of the project agreed to drop their legal battle after “productive conversations.”

In return, the Democratic governor is promising to back completion of the Hudson River Park along the west side of Manhattan.

The Pier 55 project was opposed by the City Club of New York, a civic group that argued that the park would block views of the river.

City Club member Richard Emery say the group will drop its litigation.
