New soccer stadium coming to Queens

New York City officials and the New York City Football Club have reached an agreement to build a 25,000-seat soccer stadium in Queens right next door to Citi Field. The stadium will be the centerpiece of a planned mixed-used development for the site near the New York Mets home that was once filled with auto body shops.
The new soccer-specific stadium is expected to be completed by 2027 and the development would also include a 250-room hotel and 2,500 units of housing. New York City officials say limited public money would be used for the project and that NYCFC would be paying the entire cost of the stadium, which is estimated to cost $780 million.
