If this tower were to be in Newark NJ, it would be a major addition to the skyline. Lucky for the neighborhood. Not too shabby. Decent I'd say, but nothing to write home about. Better than the housing next to it at least.

Hopefully more will rise. Always nice to see the prospects of a new highrise node.

The scale is so overwhelming for the area, I really think this is going to be an eye sore.

I recently walked by Luna Park (the complex, not the amusement) and the new brick color schemes really do a good job at making the ground level more inviting and light. Sure all these apartment buildings are old and dull, but if the rest underwent some facade renovation they could be better.

Framing has also begun to go up for the commercial complex on Sheepshead Bay Road.

For a residential building, I don't think it's all that bad. In fact, I think it's better than a lot of the stuff going up in Downtown Brooklyn and Long Island City now.

^^^^

I was in the area today, and there's another tower u/c near Coney Island that looks like its slightly over 300 ft as of now. Still rising. I know in the high rise thread we have a post for it (I'm gonna look for it), but it stands out let's just say. Get a nice idea of how it stands out from the Verrazano's.

Actually, if you are headed to Avenue U, you can get a glimpse of it.

At 450 ft, this will really stand out.

As a follow up:


Okay I think I found it. Its this one.



1501 Voorhies Avenue its called; over in Sheepshead Bay. Well, its u/c, and it stands out big time. \

No pics from me unfortunately, as driving and pics don't mix.

Yeah I've seen that driving on the Belt Parkway. Kind of came out of nowhere.

Eyesore? Eventhough it is not that exciting design-wise, it is still the best looking building in an area full of depressing towers-in-the-park/commie blocks and parking lots.

If there were more buildings like this and less of those other buildings, then this area would improve immensely.

And that's not even including the fact that this project includes retail that services all the residents in the area. Those existing commie blocks don't provide any services to their residents so people living in them have to drive elsewhere to buy groceries, banking, dry cleaning, post office, doctor, etc.

This will be a vast improvement over the poor Corbusian designs that whole area suffers from.

well I like how they fit it right in with the plaza, that's actually great.

however, the plans for upscaling the shopping plaza itself...yikes.

As for that Voorhies tower, I am glad it's replacing what was a vacant/weedy lot. I am however very disappointed that because of stupid NYC zoning (again), they had to tear out a bunch of retail buildings that had added to the vibrancy of Sheepshead Bay Rd to make way for essentially a driveway.

Cammeby’s taps Suffolk Construction for Coney Island’s tallest tower
Company will serves construction manager at 532 Neptune


By Kathryn Brenzel

Cammeby’s International Group has tapped Suffolk Construction to take on what will be Coney Island’s tallest tower.

Suffolk will serve as construction manager at 532 Neptune Avenue, a planned 40-story mixed-use tower at the site of the Trump Village Shopping Center, representatives for Cammeby’s confirmed on Thursday. The tower is part of the developer’s Neptune/Sixth redevelopment, which also includes a seven-story office and retail building at 626 Neptune Avenue.

Towers like 1501 Voorhies Avenue, Haylcon, and now 532 Neptune add a new dynamic to neighborhoods. Both Greenpoint and Sheepshead have new tallests. In the future, Coney Island. I'd be nice if East NY and Jamaica see new tallests down the line. Lots of potential around the border edge of Brooklyn/Queens bordering Nassau County.

Construction Begins on Southern Brooklyn's Golden Superstructure



Quote:
Developers are placing their bets on Southern Brooklyn. The area, made up of the borough's southern waterfront communities, will soon see its tallest tower at 532 Neptune Avenue - a 446-foot-tall mixed-use residential structure. Developer Cammeby's International is behind the 42-story, 576-unit rental, called "Neptune/Sixth," and S9 Architecture is responsible for the sleek golden design. Until the new project is complete, Southern Brooklyn's tallest tower is still Avalon Brooklyn Bay in Sheepshead Bay.

Neptune/Sixth is a large development consisting of three phases of construction and two addresses in Coney Island. The first is the 7-story commercial/retail building at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, which is now nearly complete, according to aerial photos taken by Net Power Electric.

Next up is the 1-story base building at 532 Neptune Avenue, which is on its way to fully replace the Trump Village Shopping Center. Demolition and construction have started for the base and completion is expected in a year (they are still relocating tenants). It will hold 24 retail spaces, a residential lobby, laundry facility, a bike room, and the first floor of a multi-level parking garage. In total, the development will hold a whopping 931 parking spaces, some of which will be attended. The Commercial Observer reported late last year that CVS, one of the current Trump Village tenants, had signed a new 11,300-square-foot lease at the same site and will continue to operate there until construction on the new store is complete.

The last phase of the project will be the golden superstructure that will sit atop the 1-story base. And while southern Brooklyners were against the relocation of their beloved DII department store, they were more outraged over the Manhattan-sized building proposed for their neighborhood, which had become a retirement community. Amends seem to have been made with the department store - which is set to relocate to 626 Sheepshead Bay Road - but it looks like the developer isn't budging on the tower height. In fact, the building has gained an extra two stories since we last covered the development.
