The Arker Companies and the Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corporation have acquired, for $19 million, the site of the former Peninsula Hospital Center, located at 51-15 Beach Channel Drive in Edgemere, along the Rockaways in Queens. The developers plan to build a multi-building residential and commercial complex, according to DNAinfo. It’s unclear how large the project will be, but plans will be going through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP), which indicates an individual rezoning is in the works. That means at least 30 percent of the residential units will have to be affordable.
