Pre-screening recruitment events will be held in Downtown Brooklyn today through Friday, November 28-30. All interested and qualified candidates must attend a pre-screening event to be considered for a position. Registration is required to attend pre-screening events. Final interviews will be conducted starting Friday, November 30, 2012.
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.
