While Lincoln Equities Group has been trying to drum up support and money for its Hallets Point redevelopment project on the Queens waterfront, a new developer has risen to be a contender, the New York Observer reported.

An entity called 2030 Astoria Developers LLC submitted a rezoning proposal to the Department of City Planning on Friday for a different chunk of Hallets Point. The project, named Astoria Cove, looks to build 1,535 townhouses and apartments on a site overlooking Pot Cove in Astoria. Twenty percent of these units would be affordable, according to the proposal.

“The buildings located along the waterfront would have base heights between 80 to 100 feet that would be topped with towers ranging in height from 120 to 300 feet,” according to the environmental assessment statement seen by the Observer. The buildings further inland would top out at 80 feet.

The developer’s lobbyist Sean Crowley, who is the brother of Congressman Joe Crowley, declined to identify the developer to the Observer, but said that the project would include a 456-seat public elementary school.

Lincoln Equities has been working since 2009 on its 2,644-unit-project, which is expected to go into the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) soon. [NYO] –Hiten Samtani
