In what might be something of a multifamily housing first, an underutilized NYPD parking lot is going to be transformed into a 450,000-square-foot mixed-use development featuring 350 affordable housing units.
According to a Curbed NY report, the NYPD garage in the Jamaica section of Queens will also include a community facility and a ground-floor retail space. The NYPD will still retain a presence at the site, with an underground parking space reserved for police vehicles.
The project is a collaboration between three municipal agencies—the Economic Development Corporation, the Housing Development Corporation, and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development—and is the first project in the $153 million Jamaica NOW Action Plan, which was created to revitalize the neighborhood. The development of the new project will be coordinated by Omni New York LLC, a firm that has already built and rehabilitated over 6,000 affordable units across new York City.
