City Planning Commission Reviews Innovation QNS
This week, the City Planning Commission held a public hearing, where it reviewed an application for a proposed megaproject, known as Innovation QNS; a massive mixed-use development that would span 5-blocks in Astoria, Queens. Submitted by Bedrock Real Estate Partners and Silverstein Properties, under the name Kaufman Bedrock Astoria I LLC, the application requests zoning text amendments, and Large-Scale General Development special permits for bulk modifications.
If ultimately approved, Innovation QNS would consist of 12 new buildings, which would bring a total of 2,800 housing units to the area. The project in its entirety would reportedly cost somewhere in the ballpark of $2 billion to construct.
