NEW YORK CITY-Forest City Ratner Cos. and SHoP Architects on Tuesday unveiled a new design for the plaza that will serve as the primary entryway to the Barclays Center, the centerpiece arena of FCRC’s Atlantic Yards project. At a press briefing held in advance of a public review scheduled for Wednesday evening, FCRC chairman and CEO Bruce Ratner said plans for the first residential tower, which will include affordable housing, will be introduced next spring.
