Please join us for the presentation of UNITY
A realistic, community-sensitive proposal for the development of Brooklyn's Vanderbilt rail yards.
Presentation and Q&A with Marshall Brown and Dr. Tom Angotti
Earlier this year, a large group of Brooklyn residents, architects, urban planners, designers and elected officials gathered in Fort Greene to collaborate on UNITY 2007, a community-driven vision for the development of the Vanderbilt Yards. The workshop was based on community-developed Planning Principles — and the original UNITY Plan, created in 2004, which served as the basis for the Extell Development Company's bid for the MTA-owned railyards.
The results of the UNITY 2007 workshop, including large-scale models, will be unveiled this coming Monday (see below for details).
With lawsuits pending, opposition to the "Atlantic Yards" project reaching a crescendo, and the global sub-prime lending crisis threatening large-scale construction projects everywhere, Forest City Ratner's plan is anything but a done deal. Come see how UNITY 2007 would transform the Yards without displacing residents or overwhelming surrounding neighborhoods.
