2010-03-09 Atlantic Yards Project Pacific St One Way Problems:

"Surface" parking lot to have a modular second floor deck?

NetsDaily reports that a company called More Park is claiming its prefabricated parking system will be used by the "Brooklyn Nets". More Park's web site describes its parking system as "the lowest-cost parking deck available," and a "green parking solution" that can be assembled (and disassembled) without heavy construction equipment.

A rendering of More Park's parking solution from its web site appears above left. The design of the platform would appear to be consistent with the renderings that were supplied by the ESDC in December 2010, which show a second level of cars parking on block 1129 visible above a fence on block 1129 along Dean Street and Carlton Avenue (below left).

Chapter 12 of the 2006 Atlantic Yards Final Environmental Impact Statement describes parking on block 1129 as "an attendant-park facility with no stackers." In 2009, Forest City Ratner renegotiated the Atlantic Yards project plan with ESDC, which approved the new plan without further environmental review, prompting a successful legal challenge by community groups, elected officials and nearby residents. A Technical Memorandum submitting by ESDC during the litigation states with respect to parking on block 1129 that "stackers would be in use to allow for the parking of up to two cars per space," while continuing to describe the facility as a "surface lot." In July 2011, a New York State Supreme Court decision ordered ESDC to undertake a supplemental environmental impact statement and reconsider the 2009 Modified General Project Plan.

If these flatbed tractor trailer trucks were not illegally idling & parked in the incoming traffic lane blocking the LIRR entrance & in the staging area it may alleviate such extreme traffic dangers to local residents. Also note the amount of dust @ 4:18.

Unannounced On Street Parking regulation change at Dean and Vanderbilt

Location: 
Dean Street at Vanderbilt Avenue
When: 
August 10, 2011 - 11:48am

The parking regulations on the north side of Dean Street on the west side of the intersection of Vanderbilt Avenue were changed without warning last week, as told to me by a Dean Street resident who lives across from the new No Parking zone.

The resident told me that the No Parking zone was created without warning and that he'd been ticketed based on the new signage immediately after the signs had been posted.

On August 10, I photographed contractors (not DOT employees), modifying the signs. I've attached photos to this report.
