Conditioned Negative Declaration

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed York Avenue and 61st Street development will not have a significant adverse environmental impact provided specific conditions are met. There will be a 30 day public comment period commencing with the date of this notice. The applicant, 1113 York Avenue Realty Company LLC, is proposing to develop a mixed-use development. The proposed development requires the following discretionary actions:

  • A zoning map amendment from C8-4 to C4-7 for the area bounded by East 60th Street, York Avenue, East 61st Street, and a line 100 feet west of York Avenue (part of Lot 21); and from C6-2 to C6-3 for the area bounded by a line 100 feet west of York Avenue, East 61st Street, a line 300 feet east of First Avenue, and a line midway between East 60th Street and East 61st Street (parts of Lots 13 and 21).
  • Special permit for a 195-space public parking garage pursuant to Zoning Resolution (ZR) Sections 13-562 and 74-52.
  • City Planning Commission certification pursuant to ZR Section 26-15 for a second curb cut on East 61st Street.
  • Modification of the restrictive declaration which is currently recorded against Lot 13 to extend certain use and bulk restrictions to Lot 21. The restrictive declaration would also be modified to include a provision limiting the residential development on the project site to a maximum of 211 dwelling units.

The proposed actions would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to develop a 37-story mixed-use development consisting of approximately 211 dwelling units; 2,500 gross square feet (gsf) of ground floor retail space; and a 195-space below-grade public parking garage. The entrance and exit to the proposed public parking garage would be located on East 61st Street. The proposed project is expected to be completed in 2009. The proposed development would utilize a floor area bonus under the Inclusionary Housing program. The floor area bonus would add approximately 40,166 gsf of floor area to the proposed development and would obligate the applicant to sponsor approximately 10,040 gsf of off-site, below market-rate housing in Manhattan Community Board 8 or within a ½ mile radius of the project site.

The project site is part of a larger zoning lot occupying approximately 62,860 gsf of lot area. The western portion of the zoning lot is developed with a 42-story residential development containing 234 units (western portion of Lot 13). The proposed development would occupy approximately 25,137 gsf of vacant lot area on the eastern portion of the site ( Lot 21 and eastern portion of Lot 13), and would be connected by a common lobby to the existing residential development on the western portion of the site.

Absent the proposed actions, the applicant would develop the eastern portion of the project site with a 6-story, approximately 123,900 gsf medical office facility with a 28-space accessory parking garage. The western portion of the project site would be improved as a landscaped area associated with the existing residential building.

To avoid any potential impacts associated with noise, as part of the proposed rezoning, an (E) designation for noise would be placed on the project site (Block 1455, Lot 13 and 21). The (E) designation for noise would ensure that the proposed action would not result in significant adverse impacts due to noise. The project is located at 1113-1127 York Avenue (Block 1455, Lot 21 and the eastern portion of Lot 13), located on the eastern portion of the block bounded by First and York Avenues, between East 61st and East 62nd Streets, in Manhattan Community District 8.

The conditions are: In summary, The applicant has agreed to file a restrictive declaration requiring the preparation of a hazardous materials sampling protocol including a health and safety plan, which would be submitted to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for approval. The applicant agrees to test and identify any potential hazardous material impact pursuant to the approved sampling protocol and, if any such impact is found, submit a hazardous material remediation plan including a health and safety plan to DEP for approval. If necessary, remediation measures would be undertaken pursuant to the remediation plan.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

New York County (Manhattan) - The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (LMDC), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) on the proposed East River waterfront esplanade and piers project. The action would improve a two mile portion of the East River waterfront in Manhattan and create a city-owned public open space.

New York County (Queens) - The New York City School Construction Authority, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Metropolitan Avenue School campus. The action involves the construction of a new school campus in the Forest Hills section of Queens that would provide a total of approximately 1,900 additional public school seats. The campus would accommodate two school organizations: one approximately 1,000-seat high school serving students in grades nine through twelve, and one approximately 700-seat intermediate/high school serving students in grades six through twelve. The campus would also provide approximately 200 seats of capacity for District 75 special education students.

The proposed new facility would be developed on approximately eight (8) acres of vacant land owned by the SCA and located on a former industrial superblock (Block 3886, Lots 800 & 830). This block is bounded to the north by Metropolitan Avenue, to the west by Woodhaven Boulevard and Trotting Course Lane, to the south by Union Turnpike, and to the east by 69th Avenue, Sybilla Street, and Ursula Place.

The proposed school campus would be located within the boundaries of Community School District No. 28, although Woodhaven Boulevard is the boundary between Community School District Nos. 24 and 28. The proposed new campus would contain a total of approximately 300,000 gross square feet within a five-story structure. The school campus would contain general education classrooms; science demonstration rooms and laboratories; art and music rooms; auditorium; library; gymnasium; cafeteria and kitchen; administrative and support space; and, facilities for District 75 students.

The proposed school campus is intended to provide additional public school capacity at the intermediate and high school levels in the Borough of Queens. During the 2005-2006 school year, the Queens high schools located nearest to the proposed campus, Forest Hills High School and Newtown High School, respectively operated at 160 and 152% of their facilities' intended capacities, even with the use of Transportable Classroom Units.

The current proposal incorporates modifications from the previous proposal that was analyzed in detail in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement. First, the previous proposal had involved the development of a campus that would accommodate four school organizations, consisting of two primary/intermediate schools and two high schools. Under the current proposal, the primary school grade levels would be eliminated and the overall capacity of the campus would be reduced.

Second, under the previous proposal, vehicular access to the campus was to have been provided from both Metropolitan Avenue and 70th Road, and pedestrians would also have been able to enter the campus from Sybilla Street. Under the current proposal, all entering and departing vehicles and pedestrians shall use the campus's Metropolitan Avenue entrance; an additional leg would be added to the existing intersection of Metropolitan Avenue and Selfridge Street to accommodate the school campus's driveway. The campus's 70th Road entrance shall be available only for emergency access, but would otherwise be restricted.

Third and finally, the previous proposal did not include on-campus accessory parking for teachers and staff. Under the current plan, a total of approximately 157 parking spaces for school staff would be provided on the campus, generally along its interior driveways.

The SCA would begin construction of the campus in Summer 2007, and student occupancy of the facilities would begin in September 2010. The proposed project would be undertaken pursuant to DOE's Five-Year Capital Plan for Fiscal Years 2005-2009. The project is located at 87-01 69th Avenue (a/k/a 92-34 Metropolitan Avenue), Forest Hills, Queens, New York.
