Shorecrest Towers

Another Coney/ Brighton Beach project from Schron, very close to Neptune/Sixth

Press release -

Cammeby’s Unveils Andres Escobar-Designed Residences and High-End Amenities at Newly Renovated Shorecrest Towers in Brighton Beach
Enhancements Create Premier Oceanside Living Experience; Add to Neighborhood’s Continued Revitalization 
BROOKLYN, N.Y. (Dec. 20, 2017) – The revitalization of Brooklyn’s oceanside neighborhoods continues with Cammeby’s announcement that it has recently unveiled its newly completed renovations to Shorecrest Towers, a luxury rental community situated in Brighton Beach.

The reinvention of a South Brooklyn icon, the new Shorecrest Towers feature upgraded studio-to-three-bedroom apartments, designed by the world-renowned designer Andres Escobar and Associates to maximize each residence’s living space and stunning ocean or city view. Additionally, Cammeby’s has made a number of very notable upgrades and enhancements to the community’s amenities and common areas, including a new lobby, fitness center, and resident lounge.

We’ve introduced a new level of luxury living in South Brooklyn, and in doing so, we’ve created a dynamic culture at Shorecrest Towers that has energized the community and is attracting new residents,” stated Gregg Kravchuck, senior property manager for Shorecrest Towers. “We’re excited about the dynamic lifestyle that this rental community now affords.”

The renovation of Shorecrest Towers brings Cammeby’s closer to realizing its vision for the creation of a new residential, shopping and commercial district that creates connectivity throughout Brighton Beach and Coney Island, called Neptune/Sixth. Currently under construction, Neptune/Sixth encompasses a free-standing office and retail building at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road that is scheduled to be completed by year’s end, as well as 532 Neptune Avenue, a mixed-use retail and luxury rental apartment building, for which work has also commenced.

“As we make progress on creating a new neighborhood destination for retail and businesses, our investment in enhancing Shorecrest Towers will ensure that we are providing an improved living experience for area residents as well,” stated Jacob Cohen, executive vice president of development at Cammeby’s. “The feedback from existing Shorecrest residents about our new amenities and apartment offerings has been extremely positive, and we look forward to welcoming new residents that will add to the community’s vibrancy.”

Conveniently situated between Coney Island, Sheepshead Bay and Manhattan Beach, the Brighton Beach neighborhood housing Shorecrest Towers has been a getaway destination for New Yorkers for more than 150 years. Residents are just a block from the boardwalk and beach, featuring boutiques and European-style markets, numerous waterfront dining options, and popular entertainment venues such as the NY Aquarium and new amphitheater. The property is also within walking distance of the Q subway line and B1 bus stop. 

Dan Shapiro, a life-long resident of Brighton Beach, moved into Shorecrest Towers three years ago, approximately six months before work on the renovations began. Like many residents who have witnessed the community’s transformation, he is extremely pleased with the upgrades and new amenities that have been incorporated. 

“Ownership has done a great job making Shorecrest feel upscale and in many ways similar to the luxury buildings you see in places like Soho and downtown Brooklyn,” said Shapiro. “Being so close to the beach, it’s great to see how a building like this is attracting new people to the neighborhood and livening the area. I grew up right across the street and still have family nearby, and I love that I can stay close to them and still have a great, modern apartment to come home to.” 

Added Shapiro, who lives at Shorecrest with his dog, Thor: “It’s also important to me that where I live be very dog friendly, and Shorecrest really does a nice job of accommodating pet owners like me.” 

Shorecrest Towers’ apartments have been refurbished by Cammeby’s to offer an inviting living experience, featuring oak flooring, stainless steel appliances, stone countertops and back-splashes, modern white high-gloss cabinets, sleek modern lighting, and ample closet space. Bathrooms include warm grey porcelain floor and wall tiles, and chrome fixtures by Danze. Most residences feature private balconies with tranquil Coney Island beach and Atlantic Ocean views, or spanning Brooklyn and Manhattan skyline vistas.

Residents also benefit from access to numerous upgraded amenities that provide a complete lifestyle experience, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, a renovated 24-hour attended lobby, children’s playground, new residents lounge with fire place that can be rented for private events, and a renovated community room open daily. Additionally, residents have access to on-site valet services that provide dry cleaning, laundry, shoe repair, tailoring and pet and housekeeping services for an additional cost. 

Shorecrest Towers’ on-site leasing office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays and Sundays. To schedule an appointment or for more information about the new Shorecrest Towers, visit www.shorecresttowers.com.

CurbedNY excerpt -

When Sheepshead Bay’s 30-story condo tower 1 Brooklyn Bay was first announced in 2014, it was met with mixed reactions from the community. It turns out the building’s doing something right: Just one month after launching sales from $525,000, 40 percent of the 56 condos have found buyers. 

The building itself includes 180 rentals on the lower floors, part of a collaboration with AvalonBay, with the top 11 floors dedicated to condos. The condos that are still available range from $965,000 to $3.7 million, including four-bedroom duplex penthouses.

Rybak will build a 22 story tower right next to Asser Levy Park!

Real Deal Excerpts -

Rybak buys Chaim Miller’s Brighton Beach site, plans 22-story tower

Sergey Rybak picked up a troubled Brighton Beach development site once owned by Chaim Miller and plans to build a 22-story apartment building.

Rybak TRData LogoTINY closed on the purchase of 271 Sea Breeze Avenue on June 7 for $13.5 million, six months after buying the defaulted debt on the development site. GFI Realty’s Erik Yankelovich and Yosef Katz brokered the January deal.

“As the marketplace becomes more competitive it is important to fight for the right location!” Rybak said in a statement.

The planned tower will include 114 apartments, 32,000 square feet of community space and 200 parking spots.

In January 2016, Rybak filed plans for a $77 million condo project on the site of the former El Greco Diner in nearby Sheepshead Bay. It’s the priciest condo offering to ever hit the neighborhood, which developers are increasingly targeting due to relatively inexpensive land prices.

Feltman's of Coney Island Returns!

Brooklyn Paper excerpt -

Feltman’s of Coney Island has returned to the People’s Playground, where the restaurant’s founder invented the hot dog 150 years ago. Hot dog aficionados trekked from across the borough and the city to sink their teeth into a frank from Feltman’s of Coney Island at the Surf Avenue restaurant’s grand opening on May 29. And it easily beat Nathan’s Famous for flavor, said one Feltman’s fan.

Sheepshead Bay Waterfront Restuarants

Eater NY excerpt - 

Waterfront Restaurants in NYC to Feel Like You're Outside the City

As if that weren’t enough, there’s another lobster pound in nearby Sheepshead Bay, but so obscurely located you better keep your GPS firmly in hand. Jordan’s Lobster Dock is on Shellbank Creek, where the city’s last remaining lobster boats are berthed. The restaurant has turned toward fried fast food in the last decade, but still has a lighthouse attached and stands next to a statue in a yellow slicker commemorating lobstermen (and perhaps today, lobsterwomen). In addition to lobster rolls, it’s a good place for raw clams and oysters. 3165 Harkness Avenue

Even more amazing, and only a couple of blocks away, nestled right at a turn on the Belt Parkway, stands Clemente’s Maryland Crab House. It, too, has a waterside wooden deck with a view of pleasure boats at their moorings. The thing to get is a bucket of fresh blue crabs steamed in Old Bay. Along with it comes a wooden mallet and plastic bib. The waitresses — dressed in hot pants — will be glad to show you how to get at the crabmeat. But skip the truly awful cocktails, which come in neon colors.3939 Emmons Avenue


On Sheepshead Bay proper, a few blocks from Maryland Crab House, find a number of restaurants evoking the seafood cuisines of other countries, and decorated to match. You can’t go wrong at Liman (2710 Emmons Avenue) — a Turkish restaurant right on the water — with a roasted sea bass or mess of fried fresh anchovies, best eaten on the screened-in porch. Seven blocks further west find Yiasou an elegant Greek seafood spot where a whole flame-roasted flounder, enough for two or three people and likely locally caught, will set you back $30. And don’t miss the fried mullets or grilled octopus, either. 2003 Emmons Avenue



If your interest in seafood is more Italian, old timer Randazzo’s Clam Bar dates to 1964, when Sheepshead Bay offered a dozen such establishments. Order anything with clams, including fried clams, baked stuffed clams, spaghetti with white or red clam sauce, and, of course, New England or Manhattan clam chowder. Most Sicilian of all are the zuppas, which can be eaten in traditional style with ship’s biscuits. Look for the neon lobster thrust skyward. 2710 Emmons Avenue

Bay News - Ocean rising! Tide of development sweeps Ocean Avenue

Excerpts -

Builders have broken ground and are busy erecting a nine-story apartment building on Ocean Avenue that’s part of a wave of new development making its way south to Sheepshead Bay

The Sunset Park-based developer New Empire Real Estate usually sticks to projects in Downtown and on the other side of the East River, so this 56-unit building between Kings Highway and Quentin Road is a first on this turf — but it may not be the last, as the neighborhood is turning into a hot spot for development, said manager Howard Chen.

“This is a growing area that we think is the next kind of booming area,” said Chen. “We are looking at different sites over there.”

And the proof is in the plans — developers have filed plans for 11 buildings six stories or higher along Ocean Avenue between Kings Highway and Voorhies Avenue since early March 2016, according to city records.

And Zhao’s apartment buildings is just a few blocks away from a pair of massive, office-and-retail centers off of Kings Highway, and another mall coming right outside the Kings Highway B and Q subway station

Nathan’s Famous is the first-ever official hot dog of Major League Baseball

Fox Business excerpt -

Nathan’s Famous (NATH) is the first-ever official hot dog of Major League Baseball under a new sponsorship agreement announced Tuesday.

Hot dogs and America’s pastime are inseparable, so it’s only natural for MLB to name an official representative of the stadium favorite. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council has estimated that fans eat approximately 20 million hot dogs at big-league games during a single season. Hot dogs are big business in baseball, and Nathan’s new partnership with MLB gives the hot-dog maker the inside track.

Good News!

Commercial; Observer excerpt -

DII Stores has signed two leases at Cammeby’s Internationals 626 Sheepshead Bay Road development in Coney Island, according to the landlord.

Welcome to Coney, NY Cosmos!

Pix11 excerpt -

It won’t just be the Cosmos coming to Brooklyn; the team will bring more foot traffic to local businesses and jobs.

“It’s more than just about soccer and about fans and about people coming to Coney Island, which is great, it’s about economic development,” said Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Andrew Hoan.

Bringing the Cosmos to Coney Island will call for an increase of jobs, such as concessions and in the stands. Local businesses will also benefit with the crowds coming to see the Cosmos.

“The restaurants and the different places in Coney Island are going to be seeing visitors,” said Hoan.
Hoan says hundreds of jobs will be available to Coney Island residents to help with the boost in tourism.

The Cosmos will have their first home game on April 1 against Miami FC.
