Forest City Ratner’s massive Atlantic Yards project—that hulking, rusty edifice at the intersection of Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues in the heart of downtown Brooklyn—materialized into a recognizable sports arena in the second half of 2011. When finished, the controversial Barclays Center stadium will house the Brooklyn (né New Jersey) Nets basketball team under the ownership of Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov; the developers are also required to build a minimum amount of affordable housing and commercial space for small businesses. Boosters claim the development will create permanent jobs and revitalize the area. But will the Nets’ dismal win percentage (third worst in the NBA!) help or hurt the County of Kings?
