NYC keeps finding new places to build affordable housing. This time, the site of a barely-used police parking garage will be redeveloped by Omni New York into 350 affordable apartments, plus shopping, commercial and recreational space. There’s even underground parking reserved for police vehicles.
“Under Housing New York, we committed to looking at every city-owned site as an opportunity to build affordable housing,” said Vicki Been, commissioner of the City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development. “We now have a proposal to develop a dynamic mixed-use facility with affordable homes, a recreational facility and commercial space in the heart of Jamaica, Queens.”
The 450,000-square-foot redevelopment is just the first piece of the Jamaica NOW Action Plan to revitalize the neighborhood.
