Ratner Expects Arena Approval as Critics Announce Suit

Bruce Ratner expects final approval for his Atlantic Yards project by the third week of November, setting up a possible groundbreaking for the new Nets' arena early next year. In a briefing book distributed by Ratner's representatives Monday, the developer wrote approval from the state's Public Authorities Control Board (PACB) should come very quickly after the project's environmental impact statement (EIS) is blessed. Meanwhile, critics are filing suit Thursday claiming eminent domain abuse.
