Queens Post: Council Member Won Calls on Developers of Innovation QNS Proposal to Conduct More

Council Member Julie Won provided the development team looking to rezone five city blocks in Astoria some sharp advice Tuesday: Do more community outreach before trying to get the property rezoned.

Won sent a letter to the Innovation QNS development team—comprised of Silverstein Properties, Kaufman Astoria Studios and BedRock Real Estate Partners—telling them that their community outreach efforts have been inadequate and that they need to be more forthcoming with plan documents pertaining to the 18-building project.

The developers plan to create a mixed-use district between 37th Street and Northern Boulevard, bound by 35th and 36th Avenues, that would consist of 18 buildings that would range in heights from nine to 27 stories. The developers announced the plan in 2020 and have been working with the Dept. of City Planning since in order to get their rezoning application certified.
