The action involves the NYCDPR proposal to allow the development of a multi-purpose, 45,000-seat stadium on a portion of the parking field adjacent to the existing Shea Stadium, for use by the New York Mets. The new stadium with a retractable roof would replace the existing open-air Shea Stadium, which would be demolished to allow for parking following the completion of the stadium's construction. The development of the proposed stadium will require approval of several discretionary city actions, including: Approval of capital funding for the construction of a baseball stadium and parking facilities; and an amendment to the lease for the stadium site.

In addition, the proposed project will need to be reviewed for consistency with the New York State Department of State's Coastal Zone Management Plan and the New York City Department of City Planning's Waterfront Revitalization Program, and will require approvals from the New York City Art Commission for the landscaping and stadium design, the New York City Department of Transportation (NYCDOT), Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), and New York City Transit (NYCT) for the reconstruction of the rotunda and pedestrian bridge at the Willets Point/Shea Stadium subway station, and from the Federal Aviation Administration for structure height. The project is located between Northern Boulevard to the north, Roosevelt Avenue to the south and 126th Street to the east and the Grand Central Parkway to the west. It is located within Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens.
