Scoop about arena costs poses questions about government approval, assurances; why did Gehry not stay "on budget"?

Atlantic Yards Report

If Atlantic Yards designer Frank Gehry has the technical tools to create accurate budgets and is sensitive to the practical needs of his client and the community, how did the arena cost skyrocket to an astounding $950 million?

Norman Oder examines Gehry's appearance at a 2005 panel discussion with Charlie Rose, architect Renzo Piano and legendary critic Ada Louise Huxtable for clues.
