There are 16 apartment buildings planned for Atlantic Yards, but developer Forest City Ratner is starting relatively small, hoping to break ground this year on just the first of those towers. That hope just got a little more solid, as Brownstoner notes, because Forest City has filed its first permit application for residential construction. The application calls for a 33-story, 368-unit building, and the company previously promised that it would be a 50-30-20 project?20 percent of the units reserved for low-income tenants, 30 percent for middle-income tenants, and the remaining 50 percent for market-rate tenants. The building listed on the application is also roughly the size of the prefabricated tower Bruce Ratner was considering, and a construction worker at the site told Brownstoner that's still a possibility. Because why not keep those neighbor-developer tensions simmering?
