The controversial Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn, New York, will see new architects being brought in to begin construction on the stalled project.

The development, which was initially going to be designed by Frank Gehry, recently won a court ruling to evict Brooklyn residents living on the development.

Developer Bruce Ratner is currently in talks with Architect David Childs, who is expected to be hired to construct one of the 16 skyscrapers on the site.

David Childs was quoted by the Brooklyn Paper as saying that Ratner wants to bring in different architects to do each of the residential buildings.

The project was first announced in 2004 and the official groundbreaking took place on 11 March 2010.
