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

Before tonight's Quality of Life meeting, another anodyne agenda. Some ongoing questions about project progress, plus Qs re open space, early morning construction, and sidewalk parking

The bi-monthly Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Quality of Life Meeting will be held tonight at 6 pm, online. The Zoom link is here. Dial In: 646-558-8656. Passcode: 93061478837# Meeting ID: 930 6147 8837,

During the meeting, attendees will be able to submit questions and comments to presenters via the virtual platform’s chat feature or via email to However, attendees won't be able to see chat from others or follow up on their questions.

The agenda

The typically anodyne agenda is at right, indicating presenting entities but not topics. 

Presumably we'll get an update on construction progress, as well as responses to--if not complete answers about--some perennial issues: the timing of the opening of the B4 (18 Sixth) and B15 (662 Pacific) towers; plans for the affordability there; and plans for the platform, which is required in two phases before three towers each can be built over the Vanderbilt Yard.

Just before the meeting, the developer of 662 Pacific debuted a new website for the building, dubbed Plank Road, but with some significant information (affordability, school, etc.) missing.

I'd also want to know about plans for the delayed open space at Times Plaza and the justification for requesting and gaining 6 am weekday work permits for the B12/B13 sites on Dean Street. How long would that 6 am start persist?

As to the Barclays Center, how is it that the arena (as I was told) encourages parking on the Dean Street sidewalk? Does the arena have control over that sidewalk?
