With the proposal to develop the air rights over the station tracks for the planned Burnham center, how much revenue from this would Amtrak receive on an ongoing basis?

I found some of the reporting on funding for this project interesting. Amtrak seems to be moving forward on multiple fronts under Anderson (Philadelphia, Chicago, New York) to get major station improvements implemented. If they're able to follow through I will be very impressed.

Amtrak doesn't get any revenue from the over build. The general services administration sold the air rights in 2006. Amtrak was not involved. (much to their chagrin).
