Frank Gehry to build arena.

Remember Frank Gehry, the world famous architect that bid to be the architect of what is now Sprint Center?

The Frank Gehry that some sports talkers in Kansas City basically made fun of?

Well, he will build an arena afterall -- in Brooklyn.

Atlantic Yards will be the new home of the New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets.

The development is backed by Forest City Enterprises. Yes, the group that is working with Harrah's to bidding against Isle of Capri for the slots parlor license in Pittsburgh.

I guess we'll see what Gehry can do when awarded the opportunity to build a sports facility.
