Quite a change in the before and after renderings.  It reminds me of the scene in "The Fountainhead" where Howard Roark's clean modern design is "improved" with neo-classical facings of arches and columns!

more arena, more protests:




ATLANTIC YARDSVILLE—The heat can't stop the anti-Atlantic Yards sentiment—it just comes out earlier in the morning. People for Political and Economic Empowerment will be holding a rally at 9:30 tomorrow morning "to protest the lack of promised jobs at Forest City Ratner's Atlantic Yards site and other development sites in the greater Downtown Brooklyn area," according to a press release from Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn. The rally will start at the corner of Atlantic and Sixth avenues. [CurbedWire Inbox]

Ratner unveils rendering of Atlantic Yards residential towers
 
By AMEBR SUTHERLAND, RICH CALDER and CATHY BURKE
 
Last Updated: 2:53 PM, November 17, 2011





It’s fab ... pre-fab that is.
 
A rendering of the first of three Atlantic Yards residential towers was unveiled this morning -- a honeycomb-looking behemoth that would be the world’s largest pre-fabricated “modular “ building .
 
Developer Bruce Ratner showed off the quirky overview of the project that he wants to build next to his Barclays Center arena at the corner of Dean Street and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
 
Ratner said if financing is secured -- it has not been so far -- groundbreaking for the first tower could start next spring, and be comprised of 350 units.
 
The building — at 32-stories high, the largest in the project -- is intended to go up like a huge Lego project , floor-by-floor, with each floor comprised of “pods” that will be built off site and then lifted in place and bolted together.
 
The first building is planned to be 130 studios, 180 one-bedrooms and 40 two-bedroom units. It’ll feature a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, bicycle storage, resident lounge and roof terrace, and washer and drier in every unit.
 
If the entire project of 16 towers is completed it will offer 6,430 units of housing.
 
The residences are envisioned to be a Lego’s-throw away from Barclays Center, the new arena of the Nets basketball team scheduled to open next September.

Building-trades suit over prefab B’klyn tower

By JULIA MARSH
Last Updated: 4:46 AM, July 11, 2013

Two trade groups have sued the city to block the construction in Downtown Brooklyn of the world’s largest modular housing tower.
According to court papers, the groups claim that officials allowed Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner to bypass crucial building-safety codes.

so it appears forest city ratner recently sold out 70% of atlantic yards to greenland holdings, a shanghai development group, although they will still maintain control over the project.

presumably greenland paid fcr well for it and will be able to build it out cheaper:

now if fcr would only sell off scranton peninsula to greenland too, so that could get developed...!   :whip:


edit final renders:

Imagine if the market in Cleveland were able to support such a project. Scranton peninsula could be a city within a city. Although, if we were at the point where we could support that, we would be paying 25 bucks for a corned beef sandwich....

china is encouraging investment abroad to diversify their businesses during their current economic slowdown, so now is the time to pitch to these chinese developers like greenland. they could certainly make scranton redevelopment happen, too.

The first residential tower of atlantic yards, called B2 is going up next to the arena. it will be the largest modular tower at 32 floors/322'. the prefab apt units are being put together at the brooklyn navy yard nearby and trucked over to be stacked up, lego-like:

FYI, much (most?) of Scranton Peninsula is owned by Scranton Averell Inc., an aggregates company.

Pacific Park residential tower, next to Barclays Center, is now leasing apartments

By Ivan Pereira   ivan.pereira@amny.com November 15, 2016

The homes next to the Barclays Center are stacked up and ready for you.

Pacific Park’s developers officially opened its first residential tower, 461 Dean, for leasing Tuesday. The 31-story building, which has been in the works since 2012, is the largest property in the country to be constructed modularly.

Crews built 930 rooms in a factory, shipped them to the site at the corner of Dean Street and Flatbush Avenue, and stacked and connected them like Lego blocks to create the 363 rental apartments.

“It was a long process because no one had taken time to build a modular building this big,” said Adam Greene, of Forest City Ratner, the developer behind the tower and the other Pacific Park properties.

The building, which was hit with delays due to lawsuits and financial issues, has 149 studios, 166 one-bedroom and 48 two-bedroom units, half of which will be set aside for affordable rates. Over 84,000 prospective residents applied for the affordable units, which will be doled out via the city’s affordable housing lottery, according to Forest City Ratner.
The market rate apartments will start at $2,450 for studios, $3,125 for one-bedrooms and $4,750 for two-bedrooms. The affordable units start at $559 for a studio, $600 for a one-bedroom and $727 for a two-bedroom.

In addition to views of the Manhattan skyline, Downtown Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty, the building has a host of amenities including a game room, lounge and rooftop terrace. Chris Sharples, of SHoP Architects, which designed both 461 Dean and the Barclays Center, said residents wouldn’t be disturbed by arena events.

“We engineered it that way, both the building and the arena,” he said.

Greene said the first tenants are expected to move into the tower at the end of the month and progress on the other buildings in the Pacific Park plan is moving along at a steady pace.

Three buildings, a condo at 550 Vanderbilt and two rentals that will offer 100% affordable units at 535 Carlton Ave. and 38 Sixth Ave., will open in the next nine months. The new residences will have a combined 879 new apartments. Two other buildings will open at a future date.

Prospect Heights’ Pacific Park affordable housing lottery to include 303 units

By Ivan Pereira   ivan.pereira@amny.com January 12, 2017


Apartments at Pacific Park’s 100 percent affordable housing building will be up for grabs for qualified New Yorkers starting Friday as the city opens up its lottery for 303 units.

The apartments at 38 Sixth Ave. will be given to low- and middle-income New Yorkers who fall under two brackets, according to the city and developer Greenland Forest City Partners.

Applicants making a maximum of $63,500 for single tenants and $105,100 for a family of four, are eligible for 105 units, which include studios, one, two- and three- bedrooms.

The remaining apartments will be available to applicants making a maximum of $104,775 for single tenants and $173,415 for a family of four.

Rents will be as low as $532 a month for a studio to as much as $3,695 for a three-bedroom.

The building, which is slated to open in the summer, has several amenities including a laundry room, a fitness center, children’s play area, bike storage, resident lounge, pet grooming area, and an outdoor terrace.

Interested New Yorkers can apply via the city’s online lottery portal at https://a806-housingconnect.nyc.gov/nyclottery/lottery.html or by calling 311. Applications are due by March 14.
