A "few million square feet of commercial space"? Not quite

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder points out how yesterday's article in The New York Times, "A Brooklyn Arena and the Street: What’s the Right Distance?", is incorrect regarding how much commercial and residential space would be built.

From today´s Times article on the arena setbacks: Atlantic Yards is slated to include more than 6,000 apartments and a few million square feet of commercial space...

Actually, no. At this point, it would be 336,000 square feet in the residential mixed-use variation, which is the variation currently under discussion.
