have been picked to design a possible Coney Island amphitheater in Asser Levy Park in Coney Island. The announcement came from Borough President Marty Markowitz's who said the Grimshaw firm
, which has dozens of high profile projects around the world in its portfolio and is doing the redesign of the historic Queens Museum building in Flushing Meadow Park as well as the (much diminished) design of the Fulton Transit Center in Manhattan, will design a new "Coney Island Center
" that would become a stop on the summer outdoor concert circuit akin to Jones Beach. There has been community opposition to the noise such a facility would create, as it is surrounded by apartment buildings.
