Coney Island’s housing market struggled in the years following Hurricane Sandy, but the last six months have brought plans for an 86-unit building on West 15th Street and the controversial 40-story tower at Trump Village.
Orek Igor, operating under a Coney Island-based LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 2116 Mermaid Avenue, on Coney Island, seven blocks from the Stillwell Avenue stop on the D, F, N and Q trains. The building will measure 13,004 square feet, and includes 3,063 square feet for a community facility on the ground and basement levels. Residential units above will average 995 square feet each, although the two top floor units will also share a seventh floor penthouse. Zarina Ross’s Brighton Beach-based Arcon Studio is the applicant of record.
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.
