Barclays Center Ground-breaking in November?

Buried in an Architectural Record article on Atlantic Yards, home to the Nets' new arena, is word that the team plans formal ground breaking on Barclays Center this November, just as the NBA season starts. Bruce Ratner is hoping that courts will have dismissed critics' lawsuits by then. The Record describes the new design for the arena as "reminiscent of (Frank Gehry)'s famed Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain".
