Rising on 74 acres of prime waterfront property directly across from Midtown Manhattan, Queens West is New York's largest mixed-use development in years. This multi-billion development offers the rarest of opportunities to build new waterfront residential and commercial buildings on pre-approved sites.
Already a new public school, an apartment building that is opened, a beautiful park, and developers has been selected for the next ten residential buildings, and the four commercial buildings. And as these buildings are constructed extensive waterfront parks and public spaces will be opening.
Queens West is a project of the Queens West Development Corporation, under the collective sponsorship of The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, The New York City Economic Development Corporation, and Empire State Development Corporation, with the cooperation of the Queens Borough President.
