Photo forwarded by a neighbor. Con Ed work blocks the sidewalk on 6th Avenue while s family walks around. The sidewalk on the other side of the street has been closed for more more than a year for reasons it is hard to figure. #PacificParkbk #BCIZA @nyc_dot @atlanticyards_pacificpk_report @nycmayorsoffice @EmpireStateDev @nypd78thpcc @hdr_inc @STVGroup
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.
