Flushing Commons

Flushing Commons proposal undercounts existing jobs. In June 2010, CCPD worked with the Flushing Coalition for Responsible Development to examine the potential impact of the Flushing Commons development on small businesses in the neighborhood. Detailed field surveys of Downtown Flushing found that the project's Environmental Impact Statement undercounted Flushing's small businesses by 57%. The Flushing Commons project proposed 300,000 square feet of national chain retail, which will likely displace many small businesses and undermine a uniquely vibrant and diverse commercial district.
