Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

New York County (Brooklyn) - The New York City City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 363-365 Bond Street may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted through March 24, 2008. A public scoping session will be held on March 13, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. at the New York City Department of City Planning, 22 Reade Street, Spector Hall, New York, NY 10007. The action involves the applicant's, Toll Brothers, Inc., proposal for discretionary actions in connection with the redevelopment of one block and a portion of a second block fronting the western shore of the Gowanus Canal in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn Community District 6. The proposed development would include residential, commercial, and community facility uses.

The proposed actions consist of the following discretionary approvals:

- A zoning map amendment to change an M2-1 zoning district to Special Mixed Use District (MX): M1-2/R7-2. The existing M2-1 zoning district is a medium-density manufacturing district. It allows industrial uses at a maximum FAR of 2.0 and includes performance standards; it does not allow residential use. R7-2 districts allow residential use at a maximum FAR of 3.4. The proposed M1-2 district is a manufacturing district that allows light industrial and certain commercial uses at a maximum FAR of 2.0.

- A zoning text amendment to establish Special Mixed Use District (MX): M1-2/R7-2 on the blocks bounded by the Gowanus Canal, Carroll Street, Bond Street, and 2nd Street. In addition, Zoning Resolution (ZR) sections 23-922 and 23-942 would be amended to apply the Inclusionary Housing program and related floor area regulations to R7-2 zoning districts within the special district and to provide for a base FAR of 2.7 and a maximum FAR of 3.6 within the special district.

- Special permits pursuant to ZR section 74-743 to establish a General Large Scale Plan including i) a special permit to modify the height and setback regulations otherwise applicable pursuant to ZR section 123-662; ii) a special permit to modify courtyard regulations in a General Large-Scale Development otherwise applicable pursuant to ZR section 23-852; and iii) a site plan which includes building locations, uses, and heights.

- A possible demapping of the portions of 1st and 2nd Streets located between the existing street line and a line approximately 40 feet in board of the existing mapped bulkhead line.

The project site comprises Block 458, Lot 1, which is bounded by 1st Street to the north, the Gowanus Canal to the east, 2nd Street to the south, and Bond Street to the west; and Block 452, Lots 1 and 15, which are bounded by Carroll Street to the north, the Gowanus Canal to the east, 1st Street to the south, and Bond Street to the west. Two city-owned parcels, located on Block 452, Lots 5 and 19, would also be rezoned as part of the proposed actions, but redevelopment on these lots would not occur as a result.
