Back in January, YIMBY reported that a 40-story tower was coming to 532 Neptune Avenue, in Coney Island. Now we have a few new renderings for the project, thanks to a tipster, which is being designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Cammeby’s International Group.
Developer iStar Financial and Coney Island USA have received the go-ahead to begin construction on the vacant but landmarked three-story, nearly 56,300 square-foot building at 3053 West 21st Street, on Coney Island. The structure and an adjacent vacant lot are being converted into a 90,000 square-foot complex featuring a 5,000-seat amphitheater. According to the Commercial Observer, a restaurant is also planned, and the $53 million project is expected to be finished by the middle of 2016.
Cammeby’s International Group has filed applications for a three-story commercial/community-facility building at 614-638 Sheepshead Bay Road and 2831-2843 West 8th Street, on Coney Island. The complex will have 46,350 square feet of community-facility space, and 41,600 square feet of commercial space, which includes retail and offices, according to the Schedule A. The entire building, mechanical space included, will measure roughly 155,600 square feet, and S9 Architecture & Engineering is designing. At No. 638, demolition has begun on an old single-story structure, and a two-story building currently exists at No. 614. A block to the east, the same developer is planning a 40-story mixed-use building at 532 Neptune Avenue.
SO Development Enterprises has filed applications for a three-story, 53-foot-tall manufacturing warehouse at the vacant parcel 2702 West 15th Street, on Coney Island near the Coney Island Creek. The building will measure 23,810 square feet, and Walter Marin of Marin Architects PC is designing. Filings were also submitted in January, but the latest plans have increased the scope of the project by 4,700 square feet.
Three years ago during Hurricane Sandy, flooding ravaged the Madeleine Jones Head Start Center on Neptune Avenue in Coney Island, and its owners, Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens, began their search for a new location and a new building to house their daycare center.
