Creedmoor Psychiatric Center Redevelopment Project

Empire State Development is announcing the initiation of a community engagement process for the redevelopment of the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center campus. For a century and a half, Creedmoor has had a significant presence in Eastern Queens. Now, more than 50 acres of its campus will become the focus of a New York State-led community visioning and redevelopment effort.

ESD will conduct a series of in-person and virtual workshops to gather input from residents and stakeholders in Eastern Queens to develop a forward-looking vision for the property. This Master Plan will serve as the foundation for future community-oriented and public realm development at the Creedmoor campus.  

 The Creedmoor Community Master Plan will serve as the framework that guides how New York State will redevelop areas of the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center campus in Eastern Queens. Through a comprehensive outreach and engagement process, ESD will work closely with residents, local organizations, civic groups, and elected officials to create a plan that realizes the development potential of the Creedmoor campus while ensuring compatibility with the surrounding neighborhoods. ESD would use the Master Plan as a basis for issuing requests for proposals (RFPs) for firms and community organizations to redevelop portions of the site in the coming years.
