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

Next Quality of Life meeting coming March 5, six weeks after previous one; lingering questions about project timetable

Just six weeks after the 1/22/19 Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Quality of Life meeting--my coverage--the next one is coming on Tuesday, March 5 at 6 pm:
Shirley A. Chisholm State Office Building
55 Hanson Place
1st Floor Conference Room
Brooklyn, NY 11217
Interested parties can send project-related questions, concerns, and suggested agenda items to Perhaps we'll learn some more about plans to start building two towers (B15, B4) in the next months. 

Or maybe even about plans for a giant complex at Site 5 across Flatbush Avenue from the Barclays Center, given a court decision (under appeal) requiring the project developer to provide space to retailer P.C. Richard in a future building.

The lingering irony

The irony for project watchers is that, while the bi-monthly meetings are very much on schedule, the Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation (AY CDC), supposed to meet quarterly, has not met for nearly 11 months, and the meeting scheduled for yesterday was canceled/postponed without explanation.

And it's the advisory AY CDC, which has more clout than the mere civilians asking questions at the bimonthly meeting, which could try to extract a project schedule from developer Greenland USA, which owns 95% of Greenland Forest City Partners.

How exactly will they meet the obligation to provide another 1,248 units of affordable housing by 2025, thus meeting the required 2,250 total? And how affordable will those units be?
