Photos: the B3 and B15 sites suggest dramatic changes coming to Prospect Heights

Resident/activist Wayne Bailey sent me the following photos, which show sites being prepared for development: the B3 site (38 Sixth Avenue) on the southeast corner of the arena block, at the northwest corner of Dean Street and Sixth Avenue; and the B15 site (664 Pacific Street) across the street, at the northeast corner of Dean and Sixth. The B3 site had a crane installed this weekend.

Both sites go north to essentially Pacific Street, but the street is demapped, of course, at the arena block. The photos suggest a dramatic change in scale with the adjacent residential Prospect Heights neighborhood: B3 will be 219 feet, or about 22 stories, and B15 will be 272 feet, or about 27 stories.
