Community board approves Forest Hills rezoning

October 31, 2008 11:38AM

Community Board 6 approved a rezoning plan for a section of Forest Hills in Queens. If approved by the city, the plan will limit the heights of buildings on the south side of Austin Street to three stories, and on the north side, to six stories. The goal is to preserve the character of the shops and restaurants on the block. The current zoning could allow a 15-story residential structure to rise in the area.
