That's mainly because people who are for developments don't feel there's anything to stop. On the other hand, NIMBYs are usually angry and demanding, and jump at the oppurtunity to complain or voice demands. There's a vague proposal for development over the railyards, yet what the NIMBYs do know is that there will be skyscrapers, and not just a few. There's hardly anything for even the strongest supporter of the railyard development to get excited about.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
