Friends of the QueensWay and Trust for Public Land released two images of preliminary design concepts that will be presented as part of community workshops later this month for the QueensWay project.

The Friends of the QueensWay and Trust for Public Land just released preliminary design concepts that will be presented as part of upcoming community workshops involving the proposed high line-style green space.

The two released renderings are an example of the variety of initial QueensWay design concepts that will be shown at the workshops, which will take place on Monday, March 24 at the Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (MELS) in Forest Hills, and Wednesday, March 26 at the High School for Construction Trades, Engineering and Architecture in Richmond Hill.

A feasibility and planning study for the project is in the very early stages of the design process, and the upcoming workshops will try and compile more input on the preliminary design concepts as well as additional ones.

They will also cover other issues, including open space in areas of the borough that are currently underserved; a new neighborhood park that enhances and links to Forest Park; and ideas on how to support adjacent play spaces for children, such as little league fields.

QueensWay advocates would like to transform a 3.5-mile portion of the abandoned Rockaway Rail Line into an elevated pedestrian and bicycle pathway, which would run from Ozone Park to Rego Park. The idea has sparked controversy among the surrounding community. Transportation advocates want a revitalization of the railroad line, while others want nothing at all.
