Eager to embrace an Amazon wave, developers are also dusting off old plans. The Durst Organization, one of the city’s largest developers, hopes to build on a huge site it has controlled for years, a Durst spokesman said. The site, at 44-02 Vernon Boulevard near Anable Basin, can accommodate 1 million square feet of apartments.

MaryAnne Gilmartin’s L&L MAG is planning a large, mixed-use project on the waterfront at 44-02 Vernon Boulevard, adjacent to Amazon’s abandoned site, according to Commercial Observer.

The site’s current zoning allows 1 million square feet of residential development and 60,000 square feet of commercial space.

Bruce Teitelbaum, once a chief of staff to former mayor Rudy Giuliani, is one of the investors who own the site. In 2015, Teitelbaum pitched a mixed-use development at the site that included a pedestrian bridge connecting Long Island City to Roosevelt Island, but the project stalled.
