Picture 6

Community Board 1 has voted in favor of allowing Mount Sinai Queens to expand its medical center at 25-10 30th Avenue in Astoria, DNAinfo reported. The medical group is seeking a zoning variance for a new $125 million, six-story building, which would increase its emergency department by five times its current size. The hospital would also hire 40 new physicians as part of the expansion. The Board of Standards and Appeals has the final say in the proposal. GMAP
