Plans obtained by the Chronicle, dated Dec. 6, 2013, show that schematics for phase one of the Willets Point redevelopment project were submitted to the Economic Development Corp. before the last update meeting.
The plans show the mall will take up much of Willets West while the hotel — which will be 13 floors, including a rooftop bar — and smaller commercial buildings intended for restaurants, sit east of CitiField.
But what may be most surprising is the vast amount of parking in the plans.
According to the schematics, around 6,000 spots in garages and outdoor parking will be created, taking up a hefty share of the 23 acres the city intends to turn over. Only 10 percent of that land has been obtained so far.
Almost all the land east of Citi Field will be a large outdoor lot, with two more parking lots sitting to the north.
There is no sign of where the intended residential buildings and school would be placed as they are slated to be built around 2025 during phase two of the project.
