Another Take on Coney Island

City officials announced another plan for the redevelopment of Coney Island yesterday. Artwork from this annoucnement is above.

A15 acre amusement park would be built through a partnership with a "world-class developer," and would feature a slew of new rides.

The area will be developed with indoor and outdoor amusements as well. An indoor water park can be seen in one of the drawings.

Additionally, in the larger scope, there will be new residential housing, along with green space and plenty of retail developments.

I'm not 100% clear but I do not think this plan any anything to do with the former plan that was announced by a development group earlier this year.

Both cannot exist, I believe they overlap in land use. I wonder which plan will win out?
