Renderings revealed for downsized Atlantic Yards

The Municipal Art Society has released renderings of what developer Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Yards project could look like if most of it is delayed indefinitely. An MAS Web site called “Atlantic Lots” features the renderings. “We are concerned that the approach with Atlantic Yards is to build when the market is ready, blighting the area with parking and harming Brooklyn in the meantime,” said Kent Barwick, president of the Municipal Art Society, in a statement.  “New York’s experience with other large-scale projects suggests that Brooklyn will be burdened with temporary parking lots for 15 to 20 years.” A Ratner spokesman told the Post that the renderings are “so far from anything even remotely resembling what we are building that it’s not worth commenting on further.” Ratner, after acknowledging big delays recently, announced yesterday that he would break ground by the year’s end and finish the entire project by 2018. A state agreement, however, gives him no deadline to complete it. TRD
