    Aug 20, 2017 | Atlantic Yards Report

    Brooklyn's Barclays Center will celebrate its fifth anniversary with the inaugural "Shining a Light on Brooklyn" gala at the historic Liberty Warehouse on Red Hook's Pier 41 on Oct. 12. Proceeds from the event -- which will feature a performance by Leon Bridges and an after-party DJ set by Chromeo -- will benefit the venue's Barclays Center Cares foundation, which supports community programs for children and families through its work with more than 300 schools, food pantries, homeless shelters, health facilities and nonprofits. It's curious that they'll have the event in Red Hook, not at the arena.

    Writing yesterday, MAP: Who Owns All the Property Along the Gowanus Canal , DNAinfo's Leslie Albrecht lays out the positioning of various real estate players along the Gowanus Canal, a Superfund site: As the city considers whether to rezone Gowanus and, perhaps, morph the gritty low-rise industrial area into a hot new neighborhood of residential towers , DNAinfo reviewed property records along the canal to find out who stands to benefit most from the changes. Investors have poured at least $440 million into buying land on the polluted waterway and more than a third of the properties have changed hands in the past decade, according to an examination of records for the nearly 130 properties along the 1.8-mile canal.

    Not unlike the way the Prospect Heights Historic District was used to promote 550 Vanderbilt, or the building was described as an "oasis above the never-ending excitement of Brooklyn," let's look now at another tweet claiming " #550Vanderbilt fits right in with the existing charm of Brooklyn, while making a statement all by itself." Oh, really? As one person responded , "It's a 20 story building surrounded by 3 story buildings.

    Aug 1, 2016 | Atlantic Yards Report

    There's something a little ironic about the tweet at right from Pacific Park Brooklyn, touting the new condo building 550 Vanderbilt. The photo captures not just the brownish brick and large windows of the lower floors of the tower, but also the brown street sign Vanderbilt Av.

  15. Is 550 Vanderbilt an 'oasis above the never-ending excitement of Brooklyn'? Only if isolated.Read the original story w/Photo

    Aug 1, 2016 | Atlantic Yards Report

    It's a pretty impressive image , looking south from the north side of Atlantic Avenue, right? It suggests that the 202-foot tall condo building 550 Vanderbilt stands alone, lording above low-rise Prospect Heights/Brooklyn. More realistically... But that's a very temporary vista, and one looking west from the east side of Vanderbilt Avenue would show 535 Carlton in the background.

    Mar 17, 2017 | Atlantic Yards Report

    Let's take a look at the shifting line-up of the Barclays Center's corporate partners. We don't know the dollar value of the deals, but... if Long Island University was listed in 2016 as one of the top ten partners, in terms of dollar value, doesn't that signal either that LIU is paying big for the privilege, and/or some of corporate businesses aren't paying all that much? LIU, by the way, has been a staunch supporter of the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project as a whole.
