Atlantic Yards photo map

From my photo book:

Atlantic Yards: [De]Construction Of The Neighborhood

www.atlanticYardsPhotoBook.com:

 

On December 10, 2003, developer Forest City Ratner proposed a major project for central Brooklyn, New York called “Atlantic Yards.” Architect Frank Gehry and landscape architect Laurie Olin were selected to design the project, which would today include a 20,500 seat arena for the NBA Nets professional basketball team and 16 towers ranging in height to 511 feet (approximately 50 stories). If built as proposed, Atlantic Yards would be the most expensive single development in Brooklyn history, covering 22 acres with a total of 8 million square feet of space and more than 6430 residential units. The development cost is estimated to be $4 billion.
