No hint of Phase 2, Site 5, or future Gehry role; also, has promised open space been cut from eight acres to six?
Atlantic Yards Report
Parsing through last week's press release, Norman Oder keeps track as Atlantic Yards developer Bruce Ratner keeps backtracking:
- Absent from the rendering is the signature tower ("Building One") and Site V.
- The press release casts architect Frank Gehry's involvement in the past tense, suggesting that, in reality, he is no longer attached to the project in any way, despite what the politicians and Ratner want you to believe.
- Either the eight acres of open space have now become six, or the author of the press release pulled the figure from a 2003 press release.
