In all the hullabaloo about Atlantic Yards, no one seems to remember that its developer — the Forest City Ratner Co. — was also the developer responsible for building One Pierrepont Plaza, Brooklyn’s first new office building in decades.

NoLandGrab: Although this is a lovely sentiment to look back on, several other developments were built in the interim that failed to impress the population and secured the reputation of the developer in the area as insensitive to the community and unable to stay in business without government bailouts.
