In revealing the new design for the Barclays Center entrance, Bruce Ratner told reporters that the arena is on time (summer 2012) and on budget ($900+ million). 

Ratner admitted the rest of the larger $4 billion Atlantic Yards project is highly dependent on the economy improving.

In fact, the entrance, with its imposing circular window in the roof of the arena entryway, is meant to be temporary, the space eventually filled with a 50-story commercial office tower.  In addition to the arena entry, the pedestrian plaza outside the arena box office will have grass-roofed subway entrance to the 10 lines beneath the arena.
