From the Brooklyn Standard to the Pacific Park Brooklyn newsletter

It's the Brooklyn Standard of the digital age, for those who recall the Atlantic Yards developer's 2005 foray into promotional news, captured in the the New York Times's anomalously tough 9/3/05 coverage: "O.K., The Whole Paper is Basically an Ad."

Welcome to the May 2016 Pacific Park Brooklyn Newsletter:
Greenland Forest City Partners, the team behind Pacific Park Brooklyn, is excited to bring you the first edition of a bi-monthly newsletter focused on progress at Pacific Park and other important community news.
What's Happening at Pacific Park
Construction updates about Brooklyn’s newest neighborhood.
The last module was installed at 461 Dean Street, the 363-unit rental building which was primarily constructed right here, in Brooklyn, at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The housing lottery is underway now. Apply here.
The installations of the custom facades are well under way on both 550 Vanderbilt and 535 Carlton.
There are over 1,800 units of housing under construction across six residential buildings at Pacific Park and almost 800 of these units will be offered at below-market rate. You can take the Virtual Reality tour of Pacific Park here!
Actually, two of the six residential buildings (B12, B15)  have yet to get started. Expect similarly limited candor going forward. And what--no mention of the sticker system for construction workers?
