Patch: Won Backs Innovation QNS As Astoria Rezoning Nears Finish Line

The huge Innovation QNS rezoning advanced past another City Council committee Monday as local member Julie Won voiced full-throated support, putting it on a glide path to approval as soon as Tuesday.

The Council's land use committee voted unanimously to approve the five-block development Monday afternoon. Present at the meeting was Won, the Queens lawmaker who had opposed Innovation QNS until this week, when she secured a commitment from developers to add more than 300 new affordable housing units.

"We have set a new precedent for building affordable housing on private land," Won said.
