Community Board 3 has given its support to the design for a new Conference House Pavillion in Tottenville. The orginal structure which was modled in a 1930's victorian style was demlished in 2012. The new structure will look a bit different but will be engineered to last.

According to Parks Director Kevin Quinn, the new plans will make use of an open-air design and ampitheater that plays up sunshine and starlight and makes use of the surrounding area's rolling hills and beachfront water views.
The new 4,200 square foot pavillion has been raised 5 feet in keeping with the area's new flood plain elevations. Basins will also be installed to resolve drainage issues and an easily accesable walkway will be paved. The design will use a mix of both dark and light wood and the steps will match the unique stone color of the confrence house.

The department hopes the space will be used for concerts and wedding receptions in the future. It is expected to be completed within 30 months.
