  1. The whole point for the rezoning and encouragement of development around the Jamaica downtown area was because of the large number of mass transit options. Why then require developments to include parking to accommodate cars? NYC zoning is just so stupid.

  2. Reason #1
    The building is being placed in-between Jamaica Ave and Archer Ave across the street from the shopping center and movie theater. There is no parking on either Avenue for about a mile down to 165th street. Just because there is mass transit does not mean the building will DENY residency to tenants that own a motor vehicle. Those tenants will NEED someplace to park.

    “ground-floor retail”
    The building will also be part affordable housing. A retail section will help to offset the losses from reduced rent. The retail customers will ALSO need someplace to park.

  3. Gentrification

  4. Queens wake Up.
    A Vietnam vet Evicted because the Ordered H.A.L. did not show ip. He Killed for this Country and
    because Judge Lansden did not believe the G.A.L. had an Emergency. He signed the eviction order Throwing his family Out like trash. Bully Judge Lansden. Queens housing court. No du e process as demanded by his own colleage Judge J. Poley.

  5. I would love be one of those that get one of the affordable apartment.
