Patch: Astoria's Innovation QNS Developers Are Being Cagey, Pol Says

ASTORIA, QUEENS — The developers seeking a rezoning that would reshape a swath of Astoria have failed to answer basic questions about the project or do adequate outreach to neighbors, according to a local lawmaker who may ultimately decide its fate.

The $2 billion Innovation QNS proposal would rezone five blocks between 37th Street and Northern Boulevard, adding 12 buildings, 2,800 apartments, offices, a grocery store and other amenities to an area currently dominated by parking lots and industrial buildings.

First unveiled in 2020, the project is now weeks away from being certified by the City Planning Commission, according to City Councilmember Julie Won — a step that would start the clock on the yearlong public review process that could lead to its approval by the Council.
