After decades of discussion and planning, it seems that big developments may finally be coming to Hunter’s Point. Billed as an extension of the Queens West project, the Empire State Development Corp presented their most up to date proposal for a radically rezoned and redeveloped Hunter’s Point at a Community Board 2 meeting last week. The latest plans call for a top-to-bottom overhaul of the entire peninsula, including new streets and street extensions, parks, residential and commercial space, and a new school.

The redevelopment of the area will also fall into line with the recent movement towards waterfront access, and is expected to include public park space along the entire waterfront, as well as smaller, private parks within the housing complexes.
