City Looking for Coney Island Developer


Via the Eagle we learn that the city has released a Request for Expressions of Interest for a development parcel in Coney Island. The 48,000-square-foot plot of land in question, shown in red in the map above, is north of the Coney Island amusement district. Zoning allows for a retail, hotel, industrial or office build. The Eagle quotes Borough President Marty Markowitz as saying the following about how the land could be used: “I remain hopeful that respondents will explore providing public access to Coney Island Creek — along with habitat and shoreline restoration — which I envision as an ideal place to promote human-powered boating.”
