The city’s public and private development projects are a testament to its bright future, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in his weekly radio address on 1010 WINS yesterday. Bloomberg praised the job-creating new NYPD College Point Police Academy, a $750 million project that he said will create 2,000 construction jobs after being on the drawing boards for more than 20 years. In Williamsburg, the vacant “30-acre eyesore” known as the Broadway Triangle is awaiting final approval from the City Council on its rezoning, which Bloomberg said will allow close to 1,900 new apartments, nearly half of which will be designated affordable. Bloomberg also cited the last piece of the West Side rail yards’ rezoning decision, expected this week, as a way for the city to preserve affordable housing options, as well as the Hunters Point South development on Queens’ East River waterfront, where construction broke ground six weeks ago. “All these projects in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan spell j-o-b-s for New Yorkers,” Bloomberg said.
