- As ground is being broken in Brooklyn for a 32-story apartment building, Skanska and the developer, Forest City Ratner Companies, aim to show that there's a new way to do high-rise: modular construction.
- The 363 apartments in the project known as B2 will be formed from 930 modular units assembled at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and trucked to the construction site in a redevelopment area called the Atlantic Yards.
- The project will have 50% affordable housing units and is supposed to be ready in 2014.
