On July 28, 2011, the City Council adopted the zoning map changes and zoning text amendments with two modifications affecting block fronts on Queens Boulevard between 39th and 50th Streets area. The City Council changed a R7X district between 39th and 44th Streets to a R7A district and a C4-5X district between 44th and 50th Streets to a C4-4A district.

In both areas the maximum building height would be reduced from 125 feet to 80 feet.  Also the maximum residential FAR using the Inclusionary Housing option would be reduced from 5.0 to 4.6 in both districts.  Similarly the residential FAR permitted for developments not using the Inclusionary Housing option would be reduced from 3.75 to 3.45.  In addition C4-4A districts allow a maximum community facility FAR of 4.0 where as the C4-5X district allows a maximum of 5.0
