Ford Amphitheater

Coney Island, NY

85,000 square feet

GKV was commissioned by iStar to design a 5,000 seat Amphitheater that would extend out of the abandoned Childs Restaurant. In addition, GKV was asked to Restore the exterior of the Childs Restaurant, reviving it for the Coney Island Community. The Amphitheater is open at the start of the summer into the beginning of fall featuring various bands, singers, and performers. The Venue and Restaurant border a new public park.
