De Blasio Moving Forward with New York City's Largest Housing Development in Three Decades

Although the Hunter's Point South was a Bloomberg-era proposal, the de Blasio Administration last week released an RFP for $100 million in construction to build the infrastructure and public amenities necessary to support the project.

"The de Blasio administration took steps to advance a 30-acre, Bloomberg-era project on the Long Island City, Queens, waterfront that will eventually be home to 5,000 units of housing," reports Joe Anuta.

Known as Hunter's Point South, "[the] city-led project is billed as the largest housing development in more than three decades, and all told is set to bring at least 3,000 below market rate units to the formerly gritty peninsula in Long Island City."
