Atlantic Yards on a Map in Under Ten Years

Here's a mashup of an Atlantic Yards map with projected completion dates of buildings through 2016. Atlantic Yards Report's Norman Oder, who posts this today, notes of the completion dates that "time will tell whether it's a valid reference or a fantasy." Estimates of the timeline for the full project range up to 15-20 years, which would put the completion dates in "Phase II" well past 2016, into the 2020s. If the 20-year estimate is accurate, children born on the day of the parapet collapse last week will be in college before a building is ever built on the site. Put another way, blocks of what used to be Prospect Heights will sit as "interim surface parking" for almost two decades. The graphic was created by Abby Weissman at
