Nets’ Brooklyn Home on Track for 2012 Opening

by July 28, 2011

According to the Nets, their new Brooklyn playground will open in the fall of 2012 as promised. From the Star-Ledger: “It’s coming,’ Nets general manager Billy King said Wednesday of the Barclays Center, his team’s billion-dollar arena under construction in downtown Brooklyn. ‘You know it now. I think all the negative people not believe it’s going to happen — we don’t have to show pictures anymore.’ King was standing in what will be the main concourse of the building, addressing reporters about the structure, which is about 60 percent complete and on schedule for its anticipated opening in the fall of 2012. With the NBA lockout in effect and teams basically under a league gag order as far as talking about the work stoppage or players, the Nets are left to focus their efforts on the new building, which is growing daily at Flatbush and Atlantic avenues.”
