Fire Island Update! Construction's Being Done!

I just wrote about the possibility that much of the commercial real estate in the Fire Island Pines may be for sale, included the recently burned-down Pavilion club, which one blogger said was a mere sand lot at this point.

But that was then.

Maybe it was the avalanche of press that greeted my running that info, but a friend on the Island now tells me that yesterday all sorts of workers were busy trying to start the Pavilion up again.

They were in heavy-duty, hopeful, productive, constructive mode.

Oh, goodie. That'll make it so much more appealing to prospective buyers.

Meanwhile, half-shares in the Pines (meaning 10-week leases) are still going for a ton of money -- in the $27,000-to-$34,000 range, I hear -- but the price depends on just where the share is.

If it's closer to Cherry Grove, it's going for more because real estate brokers aren't convinced the Pavilion will be ready in time for the summer madness.

You hear that, construction people? Hurry it up!

The whole future of the Pines is in your hands!

Someone on Facebook is saying there's nothing going on with the Pavilion at all, it's still just sitting there. It's the Sip n Twirl that's being rebuilt.

their announcement in the times said they hired HWKN of Moma PS1 fame to do a temporary structure on the Pavilion site to be ready by June.  dont see any reason to get in a tizzy just yet. these guys have yet to disappoint

The Pavilion won't be ready till next year. In the meantime, they might have clubbie events in a private space, maybe a tent.

For that money you could fly first class to the South of France every weekend.

I stay at the Pines but just lay on the beach. I'm not interested in clubbing so I could care less if the Pavilion is there or not.

I'd rather just stay in the Grove anyway.

Me too, the Grove is so much friendlier & more like a community. Don't get me wrong, I certainly cruise/pickup in the Pines but the Grove is home
