QNS: City Planning Commission approves controversial $2 billion Innovation QNS project in Astoria

The City Planning Commission gave the green light for the massive $2 billion Innovation QNS project in Astoria on Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Commissioners voted 10-3 to approve the proposal, which would bring 2,800 apartments, 700 of them permanently affordable, as well as space for the arts, community facility space, offices, public green space and more to Astoria.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards disapproved of the project just last month, but his ruling was advisory. The CPC ruling is binding, and moves the project forward in the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) application process.
