Buildings Come Down, Walls Go Up

This month the look of Atlantic Yards changed significantly, as concrete walls were erected inside the site and 636 Pacific St. was torn down.

Forest City Ratner CEO Bruce Ratner acknowledged in September that, because of the economic downturn and litigation regarding the Atlantic Yards development, certain aspects of the plan to develop the railyards along Atlantic Avenue would be delayed.

With an increasingly unclear timeline for completion, we feel the best way to know exactly what's going on is to track the development's progress ourselves: brick by brick.

That's why, every month, we'll be taking a look at the progress the crews down on Flatbush and Atlantic are making. As the Barclays Center and the rest of the development rise along Prospect Heights' Northeastern corner, we'll take note as each beam is raised and each wall is erected.

Since we last checked in on the development, much has changed. 636 Pacific St., which formerly housed Freddy's Bar, was torn down, and concrete walls were erected in the bowels of the construction site.
