ASTORIA COVE EIS
2030 Astoria Developers LLC
PHA was retained by 2030 Astoria Developers LLC to prepare the EIS for the proposed Astoria Cove development in
Astoria, Queens. The project will involve construction of up to approximately 1,700 dwelling units, 110,000 square feet
of retail, a 456-seat elementary school, approximately 900 parking spaces, and approximately 1.92 acres of public open
space. The four-block project site is located in an underutilized area along the waterfront at Pot Cove. The project required
a rezoning, changes to the city map, a special permit for a large scale general development, waterfront certification and
authorization, and other approvals.
PHA was responsible for overall project management as well as preparation of EIS technical analyses including land use,
zoning and public policy; community facilities; historic resources; socioeconomic conditions; open space, transportation,
natural resources, noise, and others. The firm was also responsible for coordinating the required public review process,
including the public scoping hearing and DEIS public hearing.
