The Atlantic Yards project may be falling apart on Bruce Ratner, but the developer released some big news for his Metrotech office complex Downtown: the Manhattan law firm of Weil, Gotshal is moving part of its office to Brooklyn.
Forest City Ratner Vice President Mary Anne Gilmartin made the announcement at the Brooklyn Real Estate Roundtable on Tuesday, but said that the 500-lawyer white shoe firm would soon relocate to Metrotech. That turned out to be untrue, as a press release from the company said only some back-office staffers would relocate to 15 Metrotech, which is on the office complex's commons, between Myrtle Avenue and Tech Place.
The news follows a series of bad news for Atlantic Yards, the former 16-skyscraper complex that Ratner says now consists of the public financed basketball arena, plus two smaller buildings around it.
The developer has had better news at Metrotech, which also recently welcomed the staff of El Diario as new tenants.
