Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park infographics: what's built/coming/missing, who's responsible, + project overview/FAQ/timeline (pinned post)

Another Chick-fil-A coming near Atlantic Yards, this time to the NE corner of Atlantic and Vanderbilt avenues, at The Axel

One of the biggest contributors to traffic and sidewalk snags near the Barclays Center is the presence of an uber-popular Chick-fil-A, where deliveristas wait outside in massive numbers, on Flatbush Avenue just past Pacific Street, opposite the arena. 

How, according to Crain's NY Business, another Chick-fil-A, the second in Brooklyn, will be coming to The Axel, 809 Atlantic Avenue at the northeastern corner of Vanderbilt Avenue, catercorner from the MTA's Vanderbilt Yard and the future B10 parcel of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park.

It's also directly across Atlantic from a drive-through McDonald's that has been embroiled in a lawsuit with its landlord over a future residential tower approved there, 840 Atlantic.

The new Chick-fil-A should reduce some some of the craziness around the Flatbush Avenue version, but, perhaps, introduce some craziness of its own. The timing for the opening wasn't stated.

Along with the restaurant, the non-residential space will also include space for a Maimonides HealthCenter and and doggie day care center called Hounds Town.
