Yesterday the Atlantic Yards Report attempted to answer the often-asked question: “Is Atlantic Yards on the rocks or steaming steadily and calmly ahead?” 

The answer: “neither and, though it’s surely a safer bet to back the big money (the developer and the city/state) behind the project, until final court decisions emerge regarding two cases challenging the project–cases in which oral arguments drew too little press attention–Atlantic Yards still faces a big question mark.”  Read more about the status of these court cases here.

In the meantime, a coalition of planners, designers, and community organizations has recently released an updated version of an alternative site plan, called the UNITY (Understanding, Imagining, and Transforming the Yards) Plan, which is downloadable here.
