At Empire State Development meeting Friday, Atlantic Yards should be on the agenda

While there's no public notice of the agenda yet, Empire State Development, the state agency overseeing and shepherding Atlantic Yards, is expected to discuss the project at its board meeting Friday, March 28, at 9:30 a.m.

ESD is supposed to issue a Supplementary Environmental Impact Statement this spring. (It will appear on this page.)

Also potentially at issue is an update on developer Forest City Ratner's planned sale of 70% of the project going forward to the Chinese government-owned Greenland Group.

(Dealing with foreign-owned companies, as evidenced by the intrigue involving Mikhail Prokhorov's plans to move the Nets' business office to Russia, has grown more complicated, at least when the owners are located in global powers in potential conflict with the United States.)

Meeting details

According to the public notice, the meeting will be at:
Empire State Development
633 Third Avenue
37th floor Conference Room
New York, NY 10017

The meeting is open to the public, but building procedures require an RSVP by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday March 27, 2014. Press, please call (800) 260-7313; Public please call (212) 803-3794.
