The public will have a chance to learn and share their thoughts on a large development planned for Woodside in a public meeting later this month.
The project put forth by the developer features a two-tower design at 69-02 Queens Blvd. with a combined 561 residential units. One tower will hold 17 stories, while the other will hold 14.
The site also includes 169 affordable units.
The developer, Madison Realty Capital, has applied for a special permit that would allow one of the buildings to rise taller than the current limit, in exchange for making 30 percent of the units affordable. The application requires approval from Community Board 2, the Queens Borough President, and the City Council.
Madison Realty Capital began acquiring properties on the block between 69th and 70th Streets a couple of years ago in preparation for the residential and commercial development.
The public meeting will be held at St. Mary’s of Winfield, located at 70-31 48th Ave., at 6:30 p.m. on May 14. Written testimony can also be submitted to Community Board 2.
