Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Manhattanville in West Harlem Rezoning and Academic Mixed-Use Development. The action involves the proposal by Columbia University to establish a zoning map change, text amendments and other related actions to affect an approximately 35 acre area. The development scenario outlined in the FEIS anticipates approximately 6.8 million gross square feet of new academic facilities and related uses by Columbia University on approximately 17 acres within the 35 acre project area, as well as commercial and residential development in other portions of the project area. The FEIS considers two phases of development. Phase 1, assumed for completion in 2015, would occur on the blocks between West 125th and West 130th streets and Broadway and Twelfth Avenue, and the western portion of the block between West 130th and West 131st streets, and Broadway and Twelfth Avenue. Phase 2 would begin in 2015 and will be completed in 2030.
