The NYC Economic Development Corporation’s plan to “revitalize” Far Rockaway’s Village has been adopted. The plan is to rezone the Thriftway / Food Dynasty shopping center for housing. In fact, the proposal is to rezone the Downtown Far Rockaway area to allow construction of 3,300 additional apartments with less than one parking space per apartment as a way of revitalizing the Village. The plan also calls for selling the existing DOT parking lot / bus depot for housing and moving the buses on to the street. Finally, the city will make the shopping center an urban renewal area.
The Bayswater Civic Association Board believes that these plans are a serious mistake.

There are plans to redevelop the site that was Peninsula Hospital with several thousand apartments. You can read some information about it here.
