    I agree and why only 250ft across the street at Modell's smh? On top of one of the busiest stations in the city. I don't get it.

    Barclays Center May Lose Its Entrance Plaza By 2016

    Tuesday, February 10, 2015, by Jessica Dailey

    The wide open plaza in front of the Barclays Center has proven to be a great use of space—all of those Nets fans need somewhere to line up while waiting to go through metal detectors—but Norman Oder of Atlantic Yards Reports reminds us that the plaza is likely not permanent. The original plans for Atlantic Yards, now called Pacific Park, called for an office building and hotel to rise on the site, but the recession halted that plan. New documents distributed at a Community Development Corporation meeting, however, indicate that construction is projected to start on this building by November 2016for an opening in February 2019.

    Oder notes that "building an office tower is not financially sensible now," and he speculates that the site, identified as B1, could become residential; Greenland USA, Forest City's partner in the development, writes on its LinkedIn page that Pacific Park has "16 residential towers," which means that every site would hold apartments.
    In response to a question about the timeline for this tower, Forest City CEO MaryAnne Gilmartin said "I think we're still in planning stages of B1. The issue is the obvious one: landing the building at the prow of the arena, given that the open space has become a public amenity. We are noodling over that. We are entitled to build a building…"
    Nets Daily points out that the original Frank Gehry plans for Atlantic Yards included an "urban room" at the base of the B1 tower that would have served as a glass-walled waiting space for the arena, so it's possible that future plans could include something similar.

    Actual railroad work at the (Vanderbilt) railroad yard.

    Is this prep for the platform?

    Some of it.

    Lost in the fights over the real estate development is that a big part of the project is modernizing the railyard. Originally, the railyard improvements were to be completed first, but now that is dovetailed with some of the building foundation work.

    There's a lot of stuff here, if you want to wade through it.

    Why spend all those millions of $$ for a plaza, oculus structure and subway entrance to only keep it up a couple of years?? Without the oculus/plaza the arena loses much of its appeal.

    If they really are "noodling" this there isn't much of one. Makes no sense...

    They appear to be replacing the Barclays Center's roof with grass. Coincidentally, the Nets got booted from the playoffs by the Hawks, so there's no events scheduled.

    Real grass or fake?

    It's real grass, but there are other issues.

    Four Pacific Park Buildings Are Now Under Construction

    June 19, 2015, by Jessica Dailey


    Rendering of 38 Sixth Avenue, by SHoP Architects

    It's a big month for Pacific Park, the Brooklyn megaproject formally known as Atlantic Yards. The developers filed plans for a 244-unit condo building at 615 Dean Street; launched sales at the first condo building, 550 Vanderbilt Avenue; and today, construction began on the development's second affordable apartment building. Located at 38 Sixth Avenue (previously known as 30 Sixth Avenue), the building is also Pacific Park's second SHoP Architects-designed residential building. It will hold 303 apartments and be 100 percent affordable.


    Master plan map of Pacific Park

    Filings with the Attorney General's office confirm that the most recently announced building will indeed be condos, but they did not specify prices. It will be designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox. The address for the building puts it mid-block between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues; it is labeled as B12 on Pacific Park's map.


    Barclays Center and B2, as seen from Atlantic Avenue on June 17

    B2, the first residential tower, is chugging along beside the Barclays Center, with new prefab mods being placed every day. It's not yet taller than the arena, but it will eventually rise to 32 stories. Because of all the delays and trouble that the building has caused, Greenland USA, Forest City's partner on the development, isn't sure if they will use modular construction again, even though Forest City's CEO wants to.

    The other building currently under construction is 535 Carlton Avenue, which will also be 100 percent affordable. So to recap: four buildings are currently under construction, and another one is in the pipeline. Guess Greenland wasn't kidding around when they said they wanted to speed things up.
