A contract for a new home for the New England Revolution is being awarded to a New York City-based developer, Fox Sports’ NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

New York City officials had been hoping to complete construction of the $200 million home by late this summer.

But that was postponed in December after the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation cited environmental concerns with the site.

The project is the second major New England construction project to be awarded this year to the New Yorker’s own developers.

The Patriots had originally planned to build a $2 billion home on a former industrial site in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The city has since been granted an exemption from the federal Building Code that will allow the team to continue with the project in the future.
