Patch: Innovation QNS Rezoning OK'd By Planning Commission, Heads To Council

ASTORIA, QUEENS — Astoria's huge Innovation QNS proposal was approved by the City Planning Commission on Wednesday, giving the five-block development a shot in the arm and sending it to the City Council for a final vote.

The 10-3 vote was the first formal test that the $2 billion proposal has faced, following non-binding recommendations from the Queens Borough President and Astoria's community board — both of whom had said the project should be rejected.

"It’ll lead to a more equitable Astoria with higher quality of life for residents today and those to come," said Commission Chair Dan Garodnick, who urged his colleagues to vote yes.
