Mayor joins borough president in voicing support for Innovation QNS project ahead of City Council hearing


Queens Borough President Donovan Richards has modified his stance on the massive $2 billion Innovation QNS in Astoria just a day before the project goes before the City Council for its first public hearing at City Hall.

Richards ruled against the proposal in August citing affordability concerns, but his role in the city’s public review process is advisory while the City Council can kill the project altogether.
