Childs Building Renovation, Amphitheater Construction Underway At 3052 West 21st Street, Coney Island

In the summer of 2015, iStar Financial and Coney Island USA received the green light to begin renovation work on the dilapidated three-story, 56,300 square-foot Childs Building, an individual landmark, at 3052 West 21st Street, on Coney Island. The building will be anchored by a restaurant but will also have community space and a rooftop terrace. An interconnected 5,000-seat amphitheater is also planned on the adjacent lot. The New York Times now reports construction is finally underway on both the Childs Building and the performance venue, and the amphitheater’s metal framework can be seen taking shape. The complex is expected to be complete later this year. The developer are leasing the land from the city through a 10-year contract.

City Moves Forward With Coney Island Park Upgrades, Property Seizures

The city is moving forward with plans to seize multiple Coney Island waterfront properties along the amusement park’s Boardwalk, New York Post reports. The properties will total 75,000 square feet. 60,000 square feet of vacant land will be acquired between West 15th and 16th streets, where the old Thunderbolt roller coaster once stood, another vacant tract of land between West 22nd and 23rd streets will change hands, and, finally, a 9,000-square-foot amusement shop at West 12th Street is targeted. The Parks Department will build a long-planned esplanade connecting the park’s existing attractions at the Thunderbolt site, in addition to building new attractions. In the process, infrastructure work will occur in order for mixed-use developments to rise within the surrounding neighborhood. The eminent domain actions are expected to take a year.
