The planned $2 million futuristic steel bathroom stations set for the beaches of Southern Brooklyn have been delayed. The New York Daily News is reporting that the new bathrooms, which faced a torrent of criticism from residents of the Oceana condominiums (50 Oceana Drive West) will be put on hold until further notice.
When asked about exactly when the new bathrooms will be arriving, Arthur Pincus, a spokesman for the Parks Department, told the Daily News that, “I do not have a tentative new date.”
This begs the question as to why the bathrooms, which feature modern amenities and were designed to handle extreme weather, are being delayed. Did the Parks Department bend to the will of the angry protests from Oceana residents who didn’t want their luxury ocean views spoiled by the 12 foot high facilities? Right now, no one knows for sure because the Parks Department refused to elaborate on the delay.

Muss Development is close to finally completing the Oceana Condominium and Club, a string of luxury buildings between Brighton Beach Avenue and the Riegelmann Boardwalk. The completion of the final tower comes more than 25 years after the real estate firm announced their ambitious plan to build hundreds of condos on the site of the Brighton Beach Bath and Racquet Club, according to a report in Real Estate Weekly.
Construction of Oceana’s final structure, located at 50 Oceana Drive West, is set to be finished by 2014. According to the Wall Street Journal, the total cost of the building’s construction is $40 million. Demand for the new space is high as 50 of the 59 units have already been sold. If you’d like to grab one of the last spots, you’ll have to shell out some serious cash, as unit prices range from $700,000 to $1.7 million.
