Revealed: 532 Neptune Avenue, Coney Island’s Future Tallest Building

[...]
Job applications for the building indicate its residential portion will be especially large, comprising 514,000 square feet to be split between 544 apartments. YIMBY’s tipster sent word that the unit count has been revised down to 524, possibly indicating ongoing changes. The retail component will total 162,000 square feet on the first three floors, replacing an existing 120,000 square foot strip mall.
[...]
The building’s height is slightly larger than the 430-foot figure we first reported, which only measured to the highest occupied floor. 532 Neptune Avenue will actually top-out 470 feet above street level, giving a significant boost to the Coney Island skyline, which is currently dominated by clusters of 20-odd story apartment blocks.

Not exactly what I'd call exciting or very pleasant architecture, but it's alright.

Hopefully it achieves that Coney Island gets more new towers (also in new classical architecture, using stone/brick facades). The location there is super lovely, but the towers usually are just horrid commieblocks:

the midrise was opened in May. The highrise will be phase 3 of the development.

(May 23, 2018) — Brooklyn officials today joined representatives of Cammeby’s to celebrate the grand opening of 626 Sheepshead Bay Road with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The seven-story, 161,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art commercial and retail building is part of Neptune/Sixth, a dynamic mix of retail, commercial and public spaces, that will serve as a community hub for the Coney Island community.

The building is the most flood-resilient building in South Brooklyn. To be in compliance with new post-Hurricane Sandy DOB/FEMA regulations, the building is designed so that the retail component on the first floor sits on a 4-foot raised platform. This retail component is then further protected against flooding by a ring of hyper-durable, 2 feet 9 inches of flood-proof ‘aquarium’ glass. This enabled the building to retain a modern, glass-and-steel aesthetic, while meeting new stringent FEMA requirements.
