Two 23-story rental buildings at the 1960s-era Trump Village in Coney Island have been completely gut renovated and rebranded and just hit the market. Rents start at $1,500 for studios, $1,650 for one-bedrooms and $2,332 for two-bedrooms. Many of the 880 apartments at the renamed Shorecrest Towers had been rent stabilized.
Andres Escobar handled the interior design. Now the apartments have stainless steel appliances, oak floors, high-gloss white lacquer cabinets and marble floors in the bathrooms. The lobbies, hallways, roof deck and lounge are also getting upgrades. Aptsandlofts.com is marketing the two towers at 2940 and 3000 Ocean Parkway.
Donald Trump’s father, Fred C. Trump, built the seven-building complex along the Coney Island waterfront in 1964, according to the Times. These two buildings on Ocean Parkway had always been rentals, and the other five consisted of affordable co-ops in the Mitchell-Lama program, where owners can now sell their apartments for big profits at market rates. Meanwhile, two blocks away on Neptune Avenue, the Trump Village shopping center connected to this development is slated to be replaced by a 40-story apartment tower, which locals strongly oppose.
