Demolition on Block 1129, Hot Bird going down: Photos by Adrian Kinloch

Atlantic Yards Report

Most of the remaining buildings on the southeast block of the Atlantic Yards site, Block 1129, are being demolished, and Adrian Kinloch (aka Brit in Brooklyn) took some copyrighted photos, of which one is below, looking northwest at Vanderbilt Avenue between Dean and Pacific streets.

The tower in the background is the Atlantic Terminal public housing building, while the broader building is 470 Vanderbilt, slated to hold HRA offices.

Note that not every building is going down, since one is being saved for construction offices, despite official promises to the court that everything needed to be demolished quickly. The rest will serve as construction staging and interim surface parking.
