Coney Island Commons a multi-use, sustainable designed, three-building project comprised of two residential properties and a 40,000 sq. ft. YMCA. The project, which began in June of 2011, was hindered in November 2012 when Superstorm Sandy hit.

The apartments incorporate tactics to conserve energy and promote healthy living including green roofs, motion sensor florescent lighting, Energy Star appliances, and high efficient condensing boilers.
