Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park infographics: what's built/what's coming/what's missing, who's responsible, + project FAQ/timeline (pinned post)

Three new Atlantic Yards images: interim public space at Dean/6th; arena broadcast support area across the street; looking NE at surface parking

A Technical Analysis, embedded and excerpted below, issued today by the Empire State Development Corporation as part of its findings regarding the Atlantic Yards timetable, provides some new views of the project.

Click on all images to enlarge.

Interim open space at the northwest corner of Sixth Avenue and Dean Street, the site of Building 3, and once the home to Freddy's Bar and other row houses. The cars are going west on Dean.

[A comment from Eric McClure: NoLandGrab: Okay, no one loves bike parking and picnic benches more than we do, BUT THAT ILLUSTRATION MAKES THE ARENA APPEAR NO BIGGER THAN THE KEY FOOD AT FIFTH AVENUE AND STERLING PLACE! ARE THEY KIDDING?!

I'd add that the perspective is not from street level but from a hovercraft. Paging Mr. Ouroussoff.]

An indication that the northeast east corner of Sixth and Dean, home to a vacant lot created after demolitions but also three remaining houses, will after eminent domain become home to not just parking but an arena broadcast support area.

Finally, a view from the southwest corner of Dean Street and Carlton Avenue, looking at Block 1129, slated to be home to an 1100-space interim surface parking lot. Little traffic is visible; the cars are pointed north on Carlton.
