The wide-ranging proposal to develop the Sunnyside Yard will be the subject of a public meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at LaGuardia Community College.

The plan, backed by Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Economic Development Corp., proposes to develop up to 17 acres of the 180-acre rail yard by constructing platforms above the tracks on which developers could build apartments, both affordable and market rate, schools and commercial, office and retail space.

Preliminary estimates ranged from $16 to $19 billion when the mayor first publicly backed the idea in 2015.

The yard has been a railroad facility since 1910.

Portions are owned by Amtrak, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and New Jersey Transit.

The session will take place in the atrium of Building E, which is located at 31-10 Thomson Ave.

The venue is wheelchair accessible. Light dinner and refreshments will be served. Those wishing to RSVP are asked to visit sunnysideyard.nyc.
