Vote Sept. 7 for Rezoning in Far Rockaway

Another giant rezoning seems about to be approved. City Council subcommittee members have passed a proposed rezoning in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of Queens. The full City Council will vote on the rezoning September 7, 2017.

“Downtown Far Rockaway is finally getting the investment it deserves, with new jobs and mixed-income housing, open space and community facilities,” said James Patchett, president and CEO of the New York City Economic Development Corp. (NYC EDC)

The new zoning will allow the construction of 3,000 new apartments, including 1,700 affordable units, plus a quarter-million square feet of retail space and 90,000 square feet of community space.
