Forest City Files Permit for First Resi Tower at Yards


    In February a Forest City Ratner executive said the firm hoped to break ground for the first residential building at Atlantic Yards before the year is out, and that may yet happen, as the company just submitted its first application with the DOB for the high-rise. The permit request is for a 33-story, 368-unit tower on Flatbush and Dean Street, which means it will be right next to the arena. Half of the building’s units will be affordable housing. A construction worker at the site said this morning that it’s still unclear whether or not the SHoP Architects-designed tower will be prefabricated. Alas, no real renderings yet! GMAP DOB
