If the arena is built as a green building, it'll cost every visitor a buck

From a October 2008 Atlantic Yards brochure from Forest City Ratner:
Every building in Atlantic Yards will achieve LEED certification, with a goal of Silver.
From the Empire State Development Corporation's June 2009 Modified General Project Plan:
the Project aims, through this comprehensive and cohesive plan, to provide for the following public uses and purposes... sustainability and green design through the application of comprehensive sustainable design goals that make efficient use of energy, building materials and water
From the Barclays Center Arena Preliminary Official Statement (prepared by Goldman Sachs) and released this week:
The green building fee is a $1.00 per ticket surcharge added to all tickets to help defray the cost of the Arena’s LEED certification. ArenaCo will receive all green building fees, regardless of whether they are attached to Nets or other event tickets.
