Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC), the developer of Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn, has announced that construction teams have begun hoisting into place the first mods that will be part of B2, the 50-percent affordable building that will be the tallest modular building in the world when it is completed in the 4th Quarter of 2014. 181 of B2’s 363 units will be affordable, by far the largest infusion of affordable housing in Brooklyn at one time.

The mods were built by union labor affiliated with the New York Building and Construction Trade Council, BCTC. Mods are built fully assembled, including kitchens, bathrooms, and appliances, and then trucked to the construction site and hoisted by crane and bolted into place.

B2 was designed by SHoP Architects and Arup. FCRC and Skanska USA have partnered to create a new company called FC + Skanska Modular, LLC to build the modular components in a new 100,000 square-foot space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. There are over 100 unionized workers employed at the factory at this time.
