Oh, how about two of the four buildings on the arena block, including the office tower known as Building 1 (which, though no longer "Miss Brooklyn, " had become "very special to me," Gehry said last year) and the much-touted Urban Room, a large, glass-enclosed public space.
The Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC), while calling the Urban Room (below) "a significant public amenity" in the General Project Plan it approved 12/8/06, some ten months later, in the State Funding Agreement, required developer Forest City Ratner only to provide "subway station access" to the arena, not the Urban Room "destination" (a term from the Final Environmental Impact Statement, or FEIS) that wowed some architecture critics.
Originally, Fifth Avenue was to be closed because a massive, revenue-generating skyscraper would be built above it. Now, there's reason to think that there's no need to close Fifth Avenue--unless of course, the state wants to hold out the land for Forest City Ratner.
It turns out that, after Gehry spent so much time trying to get to know Brooklyn, the arena destined for Brooklyn would come secondhand from Indiana.
