PROSPECT HEIGHTS - The Atlantic Yards project construction has temporarily been put on hold after a partial collapse in a nearby building. Fire officials say workers were performing asbestos abatement at 800 Pacific St., the site of the former Ward Bakery now owned by the Atlantic Yards developer, before the collapse. The Department of Homeless Services say 280 people were evacuated. The New York City Department of Buildings has forced the developer, Forest City Ratner, to halt all work until the cause of the collapse has been evaluated.
