The Atlantic Terrace "neighborhood" somehow lacks an acknowledgment of Atlantic Yards

The Fifth Avenue Committee's new LEED Gold, mixed-income Atlantic Terrace development is nearing completion, far faster than Atlantic Yards (which began earlier), but there's a curious omission on the official web site: no (planned) arena.

The neighborhood page of the web site states:
Atlantic Terrace is located in Fort Greene, adjacent to Prospect Heights, Downtown Brooklyn, Clinton Hill and Boerum Hill. The location has so much to offer, including two public parks, multiple schools, a major hospital, and a local university—all within walking distance. The building is also adjacent to a major shopping center, the Atlantic Terminal Mall, as well as Brooklyn’s premier transit hub at the Atlantic/Pacific Station through which virtually all city subway lines pass.
Yes, and it looks like they're going to build an arena across the street, surrounded by a tower or two or four.

There's a similar omission on the web site for Forest City Ratner's 80 DeKalb Avenue project, as well.
