TheRealDeal: Lines being drawn for $2B Queens development

All eyes in Astoria are on a new City Council member as a megaproject draws opposition from the local community board.

Resistance has popped up — as it always does for sizable projects in Queens — against the $2 billion Innovation QNS development, the New York Post reported. Local community members have cited gentrification and community character as reasons to deny the project the political approval it needs.

Unveiled in 2020 by Kaufman Astoria Studios, Silverstein Properties and Bedrock Real Estate, the 2.7-million-square-foot mixed-use project would span five blocks at the intersection of Steinway Street and 35th Avenue and include 2,845 apartments (25 percent affordable), 200,000 square feet for retail and 250,000 square feet for small businesses and creatives.
