BRIGHTON BEACH – Rybak Development, the folks behind the Vue on Emmons, have released a rendering of what their proposed new tower at 271 Sea Breeze Avenue, which they call Sea Breeze Tower, would look like.
The current project is estimated at 114 residential units over 179,267 square feet of residential space. The 230-foot tall tower will have 19 floors and offer 135 parking spots, according to the listing on developer’s website. From the looks of the rendering, it fits right in with the other Coney Island towers but will dwarf the buildings immediately around it. The property sits across from Asser Levy Park and the Aquarium on the ocean side, an easy walking distance to the Ocean Parkway Q stop and the boardwalk.
Rybak bought the lot back in June, for $13.5 million. The firm owns several other high-demand properties in southern Brooklyn, including The Wave in Manhattan Beach, which sold out every unit for up to $1.6 million; an eight-story luxury condo building on the former plot of El Greco Diner dubbed The Vue; and a nine-story condo building at 3041 Ocean Avenue, which sold out in less than three months.
As of right now, the only permit approved by the DOB for this location is for replacement of the 8-foot construction fence, which had holes in it last summer, and revealed a construction lot that was breeding grounds to mosquitoes due to standing water.
This location has been an empty lot for a long time, with a number of unsuccessful attempts at developing it. Anyone remember when it was supposed to be The Sochi?
