The word comes directly from Forest City Ratner president (and Nets majority owner) Bruce Ratner, who indicated to shareholders in June that construction would start in January and take two-and-a-half years–a timetable far different from the developer’s and team’s public statements, including to season ticket-holders.” So, mid-2011 is a best case scenario.–AYR
