Renderings for the Atlantic Yards Barclays Center were revealed yesterday. After many years of controversy and lawsuits, a groundbreaking ceremony for the 675,000-square-foot sports arena -- which will be future home to the Nets -- is scheduled for Thursday.

The approved design comes from Ellerbe Becket and SHoP Architects after developer Bruce Ratner rejected a design by Frank Gehry due to cost concerns.
