Robert S. Trump (Donald’s much lesser known younger brother) sold Coney Island‘s Trump Village Shopping Center in the early 2000s to developer Rubin Schron of Cammeby’s International Group, who, in 2014, publicized plans to replace the center with a 40-story mixed-use tower. Despite opposition from the community, the project is moving ahead, as Yimby has revealed renderings from S9 Architecture of the 430-foot-tall building at 532 Neptune Avenue that’s been dubbed Neptune/Sixth. When complete, it will be the tallest residential tower in South Brooklyn, offering 544 apartments, a retail and community facility base, and a public courtyard.

The project was met with criticism from senior residents of the adjacent Trump Village who rely on the close retail proximity, and eventually anger from the community over construction disruptions and toxic chemicals being released in the process (the site was a former gas plant). Nevertheless, Cammeby’s has filed plans with the DOB for the project, which will span a total of 752,880 square feet–511,115 square feet of residential space, 90,000 of retail, and 15,521 of community facilities.

There will also be a public entry courtyard in front of a curving glass wall, as well as a curved steel porte-cochère.

The development is located across two sites on both sides of West 6th Street; the first phase is a seven-story office/retail/medical building already under construction at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road. It’s replacing the former Royal Palace Baths and is expected to be completed in summer 2017. As for Neptune/Sixth, crews are driving the piles for the retail base, but work on the tower won’t commence until next year.
