New York City Development

Developer Forest City Ratner Companies was facing community resistance to its Atlantic Yards Project in Brooklyn for an arena, housing, and retail complex atop a major transportation hub. We were engaged with the Terrie Williams Agency to publicize the Community Benefits Agreement signed by the developer and community groups and helped gain Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) approvals.

Today, the Barclays Center, a popular venue for entertainment and home of the New York Nets, stands at that spot as the development’s anchor.
