Large-Scale Development: Hunters Point South

Hunter's Point South (formerly "Queens West South") is a proposed mixed-use, middle-income housing development situated on approximately 30 acres of prime waterfront property in Long Island City, Queens. Up to 5,000 housing units, the majority of which will be affordable to moderate and middle income families, are expected to be developed on the site, ensuring that such families can work and live in the city. The affordable units will be targeted to families earning 80% - 165% of the HUD Income Limit, which currently ranges from $55,000 and $158,000 for a family of four. The new units are a part of Mayor Bloomberg's $7.5 billion New Housing Marketplace Plan to build and preserve 165,000 units of affordable housing over ten years - the largest municipal affordable plan in the nation's history.

The project will be a vibrant, sustainable and well designed urban community. In addition to housing, Hunter's Point South will include retail space, community/cultural facilities, a new school, parking and a new continuous waterfront park. An inter-agency team led by the NYCEDC has been working with community representatives to develop the Plan for the site.
