Housing for what types of families, making what incomes? How do your proposed rents compare to the mean income of current Astoria, Sunnyside, and Woodside residents? (As this development is in the south east corner of Astoria it will impact our neighboring communities like Sunnyside and Woodside just as much.)

Yes, but this ISN'T IT. This is simply a land grab. We don't need luxury high-rise condos to fill up air-space and block out the sun for an entire existing community. If revitalizing Steinway street and creating jobs is a goal, then support existing locally owned businesses and lobby the city for rent city-wide rent control for housing AND businesses so people can afford to live and work in their communities and start, run, and hire for their businesses. Build parks and green-space out of unused lots. Nothing innovative about taking land away from a community to turn into into a glorified mall and luxury housing with a couple of teeny-tiny affordable units sprinkled in..

No I don’t support this. Not where they are building so many coops and condos don’t we have enough already. I love our beloved movie theater. I always shop at that Pc Richards. This is not right and I don’t remember anyone asking us the community how we feel about it. What will is do to parking. Enough already.

FYI, we already have a neighborhood where you can live/work/play/shop all within an easy 15-minute walk of where you live. That’s one reason many people love Astoria. The fact that you’d list that as the goal is a sign that you’re not familiar enough with the existing fabric of this neighborhood. You’re assuming/projecting $50M in new spending at existing businesses—but why would new residents shop elsewhere when you’re building new stores in the same complex they’ll live in? What % of new businesses will be chains and big box stores? Which of your new restaurants will be direct competitors to existing restaurants and bars?
