Mixed-Use Commercial Conversion Planned for Eight-Story Coney Island Theater Building, 1301 Surf Avenue

The first preliminary renderings have been revealed of the planned mixed-use commercial conversion of the eight-story, 115,000-square-foot Coney Island Theater Building (a.k.a. Shore Theater), an individual landmark at 1301 Surf Avenue, located on the corner of Stillwell Avenue on Coney Island. PYE Properties currently plans to transform the property into retail space and a hotel, while restoring the existing theater, which has been rapidly deteriorating, to an entertainment venue, Brooklyn Daily reported. Office and community space may also be included, depending on the tenants that show interest. Alteration permits haven’t yet been filed with the Buildings Department. Since the building is a landmark, the Landmarks Preservation Commission must approved any exterior alterations. PYE acquired the Shore Theater in January for $20 million. The Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue stop on the D/F and N/Q trains is across the street.




311 Vanderbilt Avenue

Four-Story, Single-Family Townhouse Proposed at 311 Vanderbilt Avenue, Clinton Hill

Adrian Devenyi, doing business as an anonymous Long Island-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, single-family townhouse at 311 Vanderbilt Avenue, in Clinton Hill. The structure will measure 8,975 square feet, of which 5,618 square feet will be utilized as livable residential space. The townhouse will include a fitness center, a laundry room, and storage space in the cellar, followed by a single-car garage on the ground floor. Residential space will fill the rest of the ground floor and the second through fourth floors. The structure will be topped by a roof terrace and solar panel equipment. Brooklyn-based Ramona Albert Architecture is the architect of record. The 15-foot-wide, 2,730-square-foot block-thru lot is vacant on the Vanderbilt Avenue side, but occupied by a three-story townhouse on the other side at 312 Clinton Avenue. The property sits within the Clinton Hill Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission must approve the new building’s design.
