When will Atlantic Yards be done? Depends on which Ratner you ask
The Brooklyn Paper
By Dana Rubenstein
The Nets arena will open a year later than promised — and the rest of Atlantic Yards won’t be done until 2022 — six years behind schedule, two key officials said this week, contradicting a promises by Bruce Ratner that the mini-city would be completed on schedule by 2016.
The FCE executives’ comments directly contradict those made by Bruce Ratner and his executives, who continue to say that the arena will be completed in time for tipoff in the fall of 2009.
Ratner has also promised that the rest of the project — including its 2,250 units of affordable housing — will be done by 2016.
