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

B4 & B15 said to be finished in October & July, but questions remain about affordability, lease-up, impact of ongoing school construction

In 8 Major NYC Projects Set To Deliver In 2021, Bisnow yesterday reported that 18 Sixth Ave. (B4) is "set to be complete by October" and 662 Pacific St. (B14) should be complete by July.

B4, built by Greenland Forest City Partners with The Brodsky Organization, will have about 860 units, 258 of the income-linked or "affordable." B15, developed by Brodsky, will have 312 apartments, 94 of them "affordable." Both are being built by AECOM Tishman.

What's unclear is the level of affordability--all middle-income, or will one third of the income-linked units be low-income?

Also unclear is how long the lease-up will take--it's unlikely the larger building would fill up quickly in "normal" times, and now it's a renters' market during the pandemic.

Another question: if the middle-school at B15 is not due until March 2024, as I reported last month, what's the impact of school construction on residential life at the building?
