It takes more than a year to pave a parking lot

From the Queens Tribune:

After the parking garage behind Queens Borough Hall was demolished last summer, the project for a new parking lot was initially delayed and has now been put on the fast track.

Kenichi Wilson, chair of the Community Board 9 Transportation Committee, said the project went to bid on March 27 and will be closed in 30 days from that date. He added that the project is anticipated to break ground later this summer with an end date in summer of 2017.

Some updates to the new 302 space parking lot is four spots for electric powered cars, LED lighting, a closed circuit camera system, and license plate readers. Wilson said the spaces for electric powered cars may increase depending on demand.

I wonder how much more it will cost to park there?

Actually at a Briarwood Community Meeting they said it's not going to be used for parking anymore.

Wait a second,they are demolishing a parking lot with what looks like three levels and replacing it with one level with 302 parking spots.How is that going to be enough parking at such a busy area as Borough Hall? Is this part of the Mayor's plan to discourage people from driving?
