Willets Point Soccer Stadium Development Revealed
Renderings were recently revealed by the New York City Football Club (NYCFB) for the planned soccer stadium to be constructed as part of a larger mixed-use Willets Point Revitalization Plan. Located in Corona, Queens, the 25,000-seat stadium will be New York City’s first dedicated soccer stadium. If the project moves ahead as currently proposed, construction will rise on a site near Citi Field along with a planned 2,500-unit 100% affordable housing project, a 650-seat school, a 250-key hotel, as well as retail space, dining locations, and more than 40,000 square feet of public open space. Plans for the estimated $780 million project are expected to start the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) review process sometime this year.
