Coney Island's forthcoming 40-story tower gets new renderings

New, 4 comments

The building will be the tallest residential tower in South Brooklyn

New, more detailed renderings have been revealed for the 40-story tower that will replace the former Trump Village Shopping Center in Coney Island, reports YIMBY.

The mixed-use building at 532 Neptune Avenue, officially called Neptune/Sixth, will eventually be home to 544 apartments across 511,115 square feet of space. It’ll stand 430 feet tall when completed, according to DOB filings—which has made the development less than beloved by community members. S9 Architecture is responsible for the new design, after it switched hands from SLCE in 2015.

Another 90,000 square feet will give way to retail space, while community facilities will occupy another 15,521 square feet. The front of the building will have a public courtyard, along with a semi-circular porte cochère surrounded by a glass wall.

The first phase of the development, a commercial seven-story building at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, has already begun construction and could be complete as soon as summer 2017. The residential tower is not expected to break ground until 2017, but once complete, it will claim the title of Coney Island’s tallest residential building.
