Redevelopments with thousands of residential units aren’t particularly common in New York City, however, the past several months have brought proposals for such projects to ULURP from several locations, including the tentative 1,642-unit expansion of Lenox Terrace, in Harlem. Today, YIMBY has the first look at plans for 2,200 new units proposed for the former Peninsula Hospital site, in Edgemere, Queens.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Plentifully numbered for developments I was cleared. (Thank you)

    Wasn’t this entire are under water during Hurricane Sandy?

  3. Another part of the plan to stuff every square inch of space with apartments.

    Who moved to Rockaway to live in Manhattan style apartments an hour and a half from Manhattan?

    And the plans are to make the new residents prisoners of the rotten local shopping by not providing adequate parking. But, of course, they WILL shop in the Five Towns, as everyone who can get there does.

  4. Nice!! Needs more market rate units though — maybe as further incentive to provide better flood protection along the shoreline.

  5. Rockaway needs more hospitals and less apartments as 4,500 apartments are excessive.

  6. Only ten minutes to the train then an hour or more to Manhattan?

    Well where to begin:
    1. Density is so high to make as much money for the developer as possible and to reduce to a realistic point to react to community uproar.
    2. Building heights and loads should be based on boraings that hit bedrock. Have someone look at the top floors of existing and older building to see if they have shifted over time. Solid base on peninsula is elusive, that’s why it’s classified as a barrier beach not rock like over the bridge.
    3. Have community board to request hiring a architectural firm to translate the needs of the community into a solution not another green band aide.
    4. Mobilize the whole pensiula into a cohesive group that interfaces with CB14. Bring on Lawyers, and other professionals that live in the community that understand development.
    5. Watch out for rabble rousers that talk to hear them selves and who might have too close affiliation with the developer, who might be tempted to stack the room!
    6. Good luck and don’t fuck up my home town!

  8. We need better schools.clean safe open space. Along with good restaurants and things to do in the community. We should not have to shop in five towns and going out of our communities. More building and crowding is not going to benefit the neighborhood We have plenty of open space here in Rockaway. A movie theater good retail companies such a trader Joe’s a wholefood. Yes these retail space improve quality of life. Not everyone in far rockaway just like chinese restuarant liquor stores and dirty bodegas some of us want the same thing the rest of the other neighborhoods in new york have . Having these stores and more things to do improve our neighborhood. We do appreciate convenience and things to do not everyone here dont care.some of us have pride in the area and some of us see the big picture. Rockaway is a jem and just needs a little tlc.
