I am writing to share with you more opportunities associated with the opening of the Barclays Center this September. We are committed to contracting with women and minority owned firms for services in the building and will share a number of Request for Proposals with you over the next few months.
MWBEs are required to be certified on a state, federal or city level. All firms interested in responding to RFPs must register with our management company AEG. Please encourage any companies you know to fill out the AEG materials.
Today we are sharing an opportunity for housekeeping, uniforms and dry cleaning. Please see all the details including directions on how to apply attached here. This information will also be posted at barclayscenter.com and atlanticyards.com.
With less than six months to go until opening we look forward to continuing to share good news about our efforts. As always don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.

Forest City Ratner
This watchdog blog, by journalist Norman Oder, offers analysis, commentary, and reportage about the $4.9B project to build the Barclays Center arena and 15-16 towers at a crucial site in Brooklyn. Dubbed Atlantic Yards by developer Forest City Ratner in 2003, it was rebranded Pacific Park Brooklyn in 2014 after the Chinese government-owned Greenland Group bought a 70% stake going forward. As of 2018, after the arena and four towers were built, Greenland will own 95% of future construction.
