Queens Post: City Planning Commission Approves Innovation QNS, Although Councilmember Won Remains Un

The City Planning Commission voted in favor of the massive Innovation QNS project Wednesday, although the person that matters most on the future of the plan—Councilmember Julie Won—was far from impressed.

The commission voted 10-3 in favor of the plan that calls for the development of 2,843 apartments in a 5-block area in the vicinity of Steinway Street and 35th Avenue. The plan, which requires the area to be rezoned in order for it to move forward, would include 711 affordable apartments (25 percent of the total units) in accordance with the city’s Mandatory Inclusionary Housing requirements.

The plan earned the support of the chair of the City Planning Commission, Dan Garodnick, who spoke in favor of it before the vote and recommended that the rezoning application be approved.
