A proposal from an as-yet unidentified developer to build a trio of apartment towers on the industrial Halletts Point peninsula in Astoria, Queens has gotten a key sign-off, reports Patch.

According to Patch, the Astoria Community Board voted 19-14 earlier this month to approve rezoning required for the Halletts North project, which would rise from an empty lot that was once home to a steel plant. In its place, an entity identified as Astoria Owners, LLC intends to construction high-rise towers standing 34, 31, and 23 stories in height, creating more than 1,300 apartments. Of that total, 335 of the apartments would be designated as affordable housing in perpetuity, with rents for a one-bedroom unit as low as $756 per month.

Additionally, plans call for a new public promenade on the waterfront, retail space, parking for 525 vehicles and 700 bicycles, and space for local non-profit organizations.

Studio V Architecture is designing the trio of buildings, which would range between 238 and 350 feet in height.

The vote by the board is a recommendation, however. A vote by the City Council is expected later this year.
