As developers make up for lost time during the recession, the New York City borough of Queens will see 60 big residential housing projects with more than 8,000 units built in the next three years, The Real Deal reports, citing its own research and estimates from brokerage Aptsandlofts.com.

Queens is just about as popular with developers as Manhattan, where an estimated 5,350 units are expected to be built during the next two years. Source: therealdeal.com
