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 owns 95% of future construction.

Meeting Nov. 29 at Borough Hall on design for first Atlantic Yards tower
Empire State Development, along with Community Boards 2, 6, & 8 are co-hosting a public meeting at Borough Hall at 6:30 pm Thursday, November 29 to share design plans for the first residential building at the Atlantic Yards site.
The site is on Dean Street at Flatbush Avenue, flanking the Dean Street entrance to the Barclays Center.
Note that meeting will focus on design and, presumably, address such issues as the impact of construction on sidewalks. There will be no applications taken for the housing. Here's more info on the configuration of that subsidized housing.
The notice does not indicate whether the first building will be built using modular technology.
