Voluntary Cleanup Program


Environmental Notice Bulletin Availability for Comment
Voluntary Cleanup Agreement and Interim Remedial Measure Work Plan
Notice of Availability for Comment

Name of Volunteer: New York City Department of Business Services.

Site Name and No.: Hunts Point Parcel E, Operable Unit No. 3 (OU3), Site No. V00682-2, Index #: D2-0006-09-03

Project Location: Hunts Point Parcel E is divided into three operable units (OU1, OU2 & OU3). OU3 is located in the northwestern portion of the Hunts Point Food Distribution Center in the Borough and County of the Bronx, in the City of New York and designated as Block 2781, Lot 500 on the Tax Map of the City of New York, Bronx County. OU2 is a rectangularly-shaped portion of land and encompasses approximately 6 acres. It is bounded on the north by the Con Edison Gas Compressor Station, on the west by Halleck Street, on the east by OU2, and on the south by Viele Avenue.

Project Description:

The objective of the Interim Remedial Measure (IRM) is to address soils that have been impacted by polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at the site by limited excavation of PCB "hot spots" on the site. Excavation is the most direct remedy to address this contamination. This is not intended to be the final remedy for the site. The final remedy is intended to include the construction of a building that will cover most of the site which will serve to prevent direct exposures to residual contamination in the subsurface soils. The planned IRM activities are described in the Interim Remedial Measure Work Plan which is now available for public review.

Comment Period:

The Voluntary Cleanup Agreement and the Interim Remedial Measure Work Plan are available for review at the locations identified below. Written comments on this action must be received within 30 days of this Notice. Written comments expressing objection or opposition to the project must explain the basis of that opposition and identify specific grounds which justify the Department's imposing significant changes to the work plan. No formal response is made to comments received, but, as a result of comments, the Department may re-evaluate and revise the work plan.

Negative Declaration

Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens and Richmond Counties - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Yard Text Amendment will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal to amend the Zoning Resolution to clarify, revise, and create regulations governing yards and open space requirements for new residential, commercial, and community facility development in all zoning districts in all five boroughs. In addition, the proposed text amendments would extend certain current Lower Density Growth Management Area (LDGMA) Regulations throughout all R1 to R5 districts. The new regulations would facilitate improvements in the design of front yards, increase the amount of planted area in front yards, and clarify ambiguous text concerning yard and open space requirements. The project is located citywide in New York City.

Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens and Richmond Counties - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Street Tree Planting Text Amendment will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal to amend the Zoning Resolution to establish a requirement for street tree planting in connection with new development, enlargements of 20% or more in floor area, and residential conversions in all zoning districts in all five boroughs. In addition, the proposal would establish requirements for planting strips between the sidewalk and the curb in lower-density zoning districts (R1 - R5). The planting strips would similarly be required as a condition of new development, major enlargements, and residential conversions. The project is located citywide in the New York City.

Conditioned Negative Declaration

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Department of City Planning, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wallabout Street Rezoning 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 action involves a proposed amendment to the zoning map to change an M1-2 zoning district to an R7-1 zoning district and an R7-1/C2-4 zoning. The proposed action would facilitate a proposal to develop two 6-story mixed-use buildings on a property located at 194-216 Wallabout Street. The proposed buildings are expected to both be approximately 60-feet in height and would contain a total of approximately 172,000 gross square feet (gsf) of floor area. The buildings would be separated by a 60 foot wide open space area and are planned to contain a total of 143 residential units, 9,350 square feet of commercial space, 9,350 square feet of community facility space and 72 accessory parking spaces in a below-grade garage. Construction of the proposed project is expected to take approximately 18 months. The proposed action could also facilitate development on a number of other sites within the rezoning area that are not under the control of the applicant. In total, the incremental development on the projected development sites and the applicant's property would result in an increase of 2,303 square feet of commercial space, an increase of 16,902 square feet of community facility space, and 229 additional dwelling units. The project is located in the eastern half of the block bounded by Wallabout Street to the north, Flushing Avenue to the south, Bedford Avenue to the west, and Lee Avenue to the east in the South Williamsburg/Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhoods of Brooklyn Community District 1, Brooklyn, New York.

The conditions are:

The applicant, Thomas Klein, agrees via a restrictive declaration to prepare 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.
