New Nets Player

There’s a new player in the long-awaited New Jersey Nets basketball arena project in the New York suburb of Brooklyn following the departure of celebrity architect Frank Gehry earlier this year.

Bruce Ratner’s Forest City Ratner has tapped New York architecture firm ShoP to collaborate with Ellerbe Becket on the venue, sources reportedly close to the matter told the New York Observer.

Renderings for the arena are expected to be unveiled in the coming month.
