"Why should people get to see plans? This isn't a public project."
Bruce Ratner in Crain's Nov. 8, 2009

The Latest on Atlantic Yards Security, Job Stats, Parking, First Tower, Lost Bridge & More

All the latest doings from the Keystone Developers at Forest City Ratner as reported by Norman Oder on his Atlantic Yards Report:

Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet round-up: Ken Adams appearance; Carlton Avenue Bridge schedule; parking lot; first tower delay; NYPD questions; new 311 instructions; worker statistics

Yesterday's Atlantic Yards District Cabinet meeting featured an appearance from the state's top economic development official, Empire State Development CEO Kenneth Adams, a Brooklynite.

Adams apologized to not coming to an earlier meeting, but said he has many constraints on his time. He said he was mostly present "as an observer and listener"--indeed, he only spoke privately to visitors.

He reflected that he had come to what he deemed a helpful meeting on Atlantic Yards last September. (Some community members might be a little more critical.)

"You all know Arana [Hankin], and she is the way to get to me," he said. "Arana is so very helpful to us at the agency, in being the point person for the project."

Hankin said another community roundtable with Adams will be held sometime in April. The next Atlantic Yards District Service Cabinet meeting is tentatively scheduled for May 3.

The round-up

Is the Carlton Avenue Bridge on schedule? Forest City and ESD say yes, but it depends on what "schedule" means

New instructions for 311 complaints related to Atlantic Yards: always use "620 Atlantic Avenue" as address; ongoing issues regarding rodents, noise, vibrations

Greening the planned surface parking lot? Maybe, maybe not, as Forest City says it's trying to shrink the capacity

Forest City: optimistic about first modular building, adding 2 BR units (but still not meeting pledge); construction won't start until after arena opens

NYPD: no decision has been made regarding precinct assignment for Barclays Center

Forest City: TA work is "going extraordinarily well" (except that's not what bondholders are told)

Forest City: average of 623 workers, 196 Brooklyn residents; job fairs coming for arena-related jobs
