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 125th Street Rezoning and Related Actions. The action involves the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) proposal to rezone portions of 125th Street in Manhattan Community Districts 9, 10 and 11. The proposed changes are part of a comprehensive City initiative to support the ongoing revitalization of 125th Street, Harlem's Main Street. The proposed rezoning area is currently zoned R7-2, C4-4, C4-4A, C4-5, C4-7, and M1-2, and the rezoning proposal would create a new special district, the Special 125th Street District, within the rezoning area and change the area's underlying zoning to R6A, R7-2, R7A, C4-4A, C4-4D, C6-3, and C4-7, as modified by the proposed special district. In addition to the zoning map and text amendments, the proposed action includes the disposition of City-owned property, an Urban Renewal Plan amendment, a City Planning Commission (CPC) certification pursuant to the Special TA (transit land use) District, and Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP) designation and project approval (a non-ULURP action) in connection with a known development on a site within the rezoning area. The project is generally bounded by 124th Street, 126th Street, Broadway and Second Avenue, in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, New York.
