The end of Forest City: stock delisted, assets now part of Brookfield

First, half of the executive team goes, then the company identity vaporizes, as Forest City has now been absorbed by Brookfield, with the transaction closing yesterday.

At right is the message on Forest City's home page:
For nearly a century, Forest City has owned, developed and managed dynamic commercial, residential and mixed-use real estate in core markets across the United States.
In November 2018, the company announced that its stockholders approved the acquisition of Forest City by a real estate investment fund of Brookfield Asset Management, a global leader in alternative asset management. The transaction closed on December 7, 2018.
Forest City’s property portfolio is now managed by Brookfield Properties, a global, best-in-class real estate operating company.
Here's the Brookfield press release yesterday, Brookfield Completes Acquisition of Forest City Realty Trust:
NEW YORK and CLEVELAND, Dec. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (“Brookfield”) (NYSE: BAM) (TSX: BAM.A) (Euronext: BAMA) and Forest City Realty Trust, Inc. (“Forest City”) (NYSE: FCEA) today announced the completion of the acquisition of Forest City by a Brookfield real estate investment fund. The transaction was approved at a special meeting of Forest City’s stockholders held on November 15, 2018.
Forest City’s diversified real estate portfolio is comprised of a number of iconic assets across major gateway U.S. cities. The portfolio, which features many natural synergies with Brookfield’s existing real estate operating business, includes 6.3 million square feet of high-quality office space, 2.3 million square feet of premier life sciences assets, 2.2 million square feet of retail space and 18,500 multifamily units. In addition, the portfolio features five large-scale development projects in the New York Metro area, San Francisco and Washington, DC.
In connection with the closing of the transaction, Forest City’s existing common stock will be delisted from the New York Stock Exchange at the close of business on December 7, 2018.
Brookfield Asset Management Inc. is a leading global alternative asset manager with over $330 billion in assets under management.

For the time being, at least, a search on Brookfield's web site for "Atlantic Yards" or "Pacific Park" comes up blank.
