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

At ESD meeting tomorrow, discussion of changes to Atlantic Yards B4 tower

Guess what: there's some change in the plan for the Atlantic Yards tower known as B4, a 50-story building at the northeast corner of the arena block, and that change will be aired at a meeting tomorrow of the state agency overseeing the project.

The board of Directors of the New York State Urban Development Corporation d/b/a
the Empire State Development will meet Thursday, October 17 at 9:30 a.m. The location:
Empire State Development
37th Floor Conference Room
633 Third Avenue
New York, New York

This meeting is open to the public for observation and comment. A webcast will be available.

Due to building procedures, those attending in New York City please RSVP by 5:00 p.m. today, Wednesday, October 16. Press please call 1-800-260-7313; public please call 212-803-3794.

From the agenda:
A. Brooklyn (Kings County) - Atlantic Yards Land Use Improvement and Civic Project – Adoption of Modification to Project Building 4 Design Documents SK-1935, SK-1943 and SK-1944; and Authorization to Take Related Actions
A modification to the design could be relatively minor. So could "related actions." But who knows.
