The Mod Squad is coming to Atlantic Yards Thursday afternoon!

Pre-made units for the world’s tallest modular building will be hoisted into place at a construction site in the shadow of Barclays Center.

Downtown Brooklyn’s first pre-fab apartment tower – referred to by developer Forest City Ratner as B2 – will start to take shape at Flatbush Avenue and Dean Street.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

When it’s done, the tower, designed by high-profile SHoP Architects and engineering firm Arup, will be 322 feet tall. It will be the first housing constructed at Atlantic Yards – where Barclays Center recently completed its first year of operations and was named the Number One concert venue in America.

The modular components for the 32-story, 363-unit rental apartment building were manufactured by union workers at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Fifty percent of the apartments will be rented to low- and middle-income households.

While we wait for the hoists to crank up, here’s some architectural eye candy to look at.
