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.

Still waiting for info about Atlantic Yards CDC, as meeting approaches
There's a meeting today at 4 pm of the Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation, but we still don't know who's on the board and who's been hired as staff.
That's not too transparent, is it?
Note the commenter on my previous post who pointed out that a 4 pm Friday meeting does not exactly accommodate observant Jews.
