A Convention Center Slated Near Citi Field


There are huge plans in the works for 112-21 Northern Boulevard, the former Ford dealership that sold in December for $17,000,000 to Fleet Financial Group. The Daily News reports that the developers plan to build a 106,000-square-foot convention center with a 25-story, 292-room hotel and a 236-unit apartment development above it. The complex will also include 97,000 square feet of retail space, a restaurant and parking. There may even be an Audi showroom on site. Fleet Financial expects to break ground on the $200,000,000 project this summer.

This site is right across Grand Central Parkway from Citi Field, where of course an even larger development is coming to the area — the mega-mall planned for Willets Point.
