Permits have been pre-filed for a 16-story mid-rise as part of a larger mega-development at 2926 West 19th Street, Coney Island, Brooklyn, which YIMBY first revealed back in January. The site is five blocks away from the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue subway station, serviced by the D, F, N, and Q trains, and right across the street from a multi-purpose baseball ballpark.

L+M Development will be responsible for the development. The firm focuses on emerging markets to build affordable housing to promote social responsibility.

The 165-foot tall structure will yield 624,800 square feet within, with 81,350 square feet dedicated to commercial-retail and office use, and 543,440 square feet for residential use. 446 apartments will be created, averaging 1,133 square feet apiece, indicating condominiums.

108 parking spaces will be available in an open garage, and five retail spaces will be included on the ground floor. Offices will be placed on the first, second, and third floors. Tenants will have a lobby, fitness center, laundry, and recreational spaces.

Demolition permits have not yet been filed, and the estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: I hope next details will indicate new location.

  2. I bet someone is going to complain that the upper floor units in the tower facing the ball park will be able to see all the games/events for free.

  3. Thats good more homes for people on need i hope 9s loew income familys to not only people with money already

  4. Gentrify the area, I need some real estate profits! Get NYCHA out and price out the section 8’ers. I see some real potential here.

  5. Can we stop building affordable housing and low-income housing in Coney Island? We have plenty of that already. Can we please have middle-class rentals so we can diversify the neighborhood. It is important to diversify. Otherwise, Coney Island will never get better. How the cit allowed to build projects on a million dollar property and views. Coney Island could have been an incredible place to build up Brooklyn and bring in revenue to the city.

  6. Stella,

    Dont worry about the low-income housing, its a process that every up and coming neighborhood goes through. The city can’t just throw low-income people/seniors out all at once…so what do the developers do? They build partially market rate partially subsides housing but with the changing landscape and price increases eventually, these people go either way because their local supermarkets with and rundown groceries move and they cannot afford organic produce or quality products. Also creating subsides units allows developers to increase zoning requirements or allow for additional development in other ways..they are not providing those units in luxury buildings because they care lol
