Waterfront Development Plan for Queens, NYC Revealed

Phase One of the Hunter's Point South waterfront development is set to begin as Mayor Bloomberg unveils details of the plan.

The plan will transform the east bank of the East River. The first phase alone will add 900 new housing units.

"The first phase, to be completed by 2014, will also create five acres of new waterfront parkland, a new 1,100-seat intermediate and high school, new retail space and parking. Bloomberg said, 'At Hunter's Point South, not only will we build the largest new affordable housing complex in more than three decades, we'll do it on long-vacant waterfront property that has incredible views and sits adjacent to one of New York City's fastest growing neighborhoods.'"
