The shopping mall portion of the Willets Point redevelopment megaproject is headed to City Planning. Queens Borough President Helen Marshall approved the plans for a 1.4-million-square-foot retail complex to be developed by Sterling Equities and Related Companies on what is currently the parking lot for Citi Field. She asked for local hiring benchmarks and wants there to be more community input, but otherwise, she was all for it?unlike the community board. City Planning will hold a public hearing about the mall tomorrow. [NYDN; previously]
