Municipal Art Society Gives Prognosis for Atlantic Yards

In an otherwise critical sound-off on Atlantic Yards, Municipal Art Society head Kent Barwick tells StreetsBlog that there is still, in his eyes, hope for the mega-complex:

“I don’t think this project is substantially designed in its later phases,” he said, pointing out that it could be a decade before construction begins on much of the housing and retail space even if the ESDC rubber stamps the project this winter. “Battery Park City and Riverside South got redesigned several times before they got built,” observes Barwick.
