Development recap: Old Astoria
The following developments are in the pipeline for the Old Astoria and surrounding Neighborhood!
All of these are all As of Right. This means they do not require a zoning change. They are building within the existing zoning requirements.
Because of this, they are not required to provide Affordable Housing. Affordable Housing is only mandated by the city as a requirement when a Zoning Change is requested by the Developer. (Though in this case, AKI Development, developer of 23-71 31st st is indeed providing 30% Affordable Housing by choice. We have no up to date info one way or the other on the other rental developments)
Remember, a very important aspect of an approved zoning change is the creation of Mandatory Rent Stabilized (In Perpetuity) Affordable Housing. Not required with As of Right development.
