Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

Two weeks ago, FCR said first residential building would begin this year; now they're talking summer 2011

At a public meeting on February 24, Forest City Ratner executive Jane Marshall said, "As we've stated publicly, we intend to begin design of the first residential building in such a way that it can break ground in the fourth quarter of this year."

An article in the past week's Courier-Life chain quotes FCR spokesperson Joe DePlasco:
Phase one of the construction is the arena block including three residential buildings.

The first of these buildings is scheduled to start in the summer 2011, with the second building six to nine months after that, and the third six to nine months after that, said DePlasco.
In other words, the schedule has already changed. (Update: the latter timetable has been confirmed; in the winter, the design phase will start for the first building.)
