    Um... isn't that a mansion in Newport, RI? They should think of a better, perhaps more original, name.

    A complex like Oceana would be cool, though.

    This week's Bay News has an article on the new Hotel being built on Emmons and Nostrand. Not much info only that its going to be 4 stories, its being built "as of right" and it may be a motel not a hotel. Basically nobody knows much about it and the community is concerned. I guess I am the only one who thinks hotels are good for a neighborhood. People against Kings Plaza expanding, people against hotel development, people against arena development in Brooklyn. Maybe people like living on farms. I don't.

    The Kings Plaza one isn't good and neither is having something built if you have no idea what it is.

    Kings Plaza expansion is excellent. It needs to be much bigger to compete with Staten Island Mall, and Roosevelt Field in LI. More retail, big movie theater, restaurants. Definitely in favor of it.

    In the Bay News it says residents are against the hotel/motel because its 4 stories and it will cutdown sunlight and air and change the "character"of the neighborhood. Give me a break. I say knock down all the ridiculous little bungalows there and build a block of hotels. If you want to live in Bungalows live in the country. This is Brooklyn!

    These anti-development people are living on another planet as far as I am concerned. I am all for big business.

    I wasn't knocking the hotel on the grounds of its height (whose counterargument is ridiculous, if they're not blind the residents can spot the two 7 story buildings going up nearby), I was against building something without having a clue as to what it will be.

    As for KP, the expansion is based on a huge, corporate Loews with megaparking. Brooklyn is getting more shopping anyway, with Gateway Center (sadly), Atlantic Terminal, and improvements on Fulton St.

    Kings Plaza was "the place" to shop in Brooklyn in the 70s and 80s. The fact that there is more shopping in other parts of Brooklyn now only underscores the fact that the Plaza needs to get bigger to compete. My hope is for the Plaza to become the destination that it once was for all of South Brooklyn. Everybody and I mean everybody used to shop there. It was synonomous with Brooklyn. You lived here you shopped at the Plaza, you didn't go to LI or SI.

    Spoke with the demolition crew working on the property next door to Roll-N-Roaster. They told me more condos going up on that site. Thats right next to the new hotel construction site on Emmons and Nostrand. Something is going on at the old Bay Casino building next to the new Comfort Inn. I heard a restaurant, somebody else told me more condos. By my count we got 6 or 7 new condo construction sites on Emmons and 2 hotel construction sites. Never have seen this type of activity in Sheepshead Bay ever. A century ago Emmons Ave was known as "Millionaires Row". Looks like its heading there again.

    Oh by the way passed by the Oceana condos in Brighton this weekend. Prices went up to over $1.5 mil! Wow!

    This is good news. Do any of the buldings look good, or are they basic brick boxes? How tall are they? Waterfront?

    Oceana is 7 and 12 story buildings which are very painted concrete-PoMo... they're in Brighton Beach though.

    Most of the new Sheepshead condos are decent, though one new one sticks out like a sore thumb (boring tan brick, visible fire escapes etc). Nothing with fantastic architecture though.

    All the condo complexes and the 2 hotels being built on Emmons will have water views. They are either right on the water (Palm Shore condos, another condo called "The Marina", Comfort Inn hotel) or across the street from the Bay with terraces facing the ocean. I counted 6 condo construction sites today. I also saw the work permit went up at the old Bay Casino building today and it says restaurants. Not gonna be condos there and I am glad because its sits right next door to the Comfort Inn and what better place to put a big restaurant then next door to a hotel.

    Here is a link to the Oceana condos in Brighton. I know Gulcrapek doesn't like the architecture but I think this complex is singlehandedly changing the image of South Brooklyn waterfront property. For condos to be selling in excess of 1.5 million dollars in South Brooklyn is amazing and Joshua Muss should be commended for what he has built. I actually saw people taking pictures of this development this past weekend on the boardwalk.

    New Hotel on Emmons will be a Best Western. Few blocks away from the new Comfort Inn.

    I like Oceana, the whole concept of the community on the beach. NYC needs more of this. Would like to see some more tall, glass condos reflecting the sun, sand, and sea, though, but first things first...
