ENB - Region 2 Notices

Negative Declaration

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) and the New York City Department of Small Business Services (NYC SBS), as co-lead agencies, have determined that the proposed Sunset Park Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) - 30th Street Pier, Brooklyn will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The applicant, Sims Municipal Recycling of New York LLC (Sims), is seeking a lease from the New York City Department of Small Business Services (SBS) for the use of the 30th Street Pier located within the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal (SBMT) in Sunset Park, Brooklyn to construct and operate a materials recovery facility (MRF), also known as a recyclables handling and recovery facility. Sims also proposes to enter into a long-term contract with the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) to process and market source separated recyclables delivered by DSNY. The lease and contract term are expected to be both 23 years, with one ten year renewal option and a subsequent seven year renewal option. Materials to be handled at the proposed facility would include New York City designated recyclables consisting of metal containers and bulk metal, glass, plastic bottles and jugs ("MGP"); newspaper, magazines, mixed paper and cardboard (collectively, "Paper"), and certain scrap metal, and would be transported to and from the facility by barge and/or truck. DSNY would fund certain improvements Sims would make to the Pier. Sims would construct and operate the MRF. The site to be leased comprises approximately 499,000 square feet, or 11.45 acres. The contract would replace the current short-term contract with Simsmetal East LLC (an affiliate of Sims) under which DSNY collected MGP is delivered to Simsmetal East facilities at 850 Edgewater Road, Bronx, 30-27 Greenpoint Avenue, Long Island City, Queens, and 1 Linden Avenue East, Jersey City, NJ. Under the long-term contract, DSNY would continue to deliver to these facilities, but add the 30th Street Pier facility as a tipping location. The project is located at the 30th Street Pier within the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal (SBMT), west of Second Avenue and marginal/wharf/place, extending into Gowanus Basin the Borough of Brooklyn, New York.

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 305 West 138th Street will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), on behalf of the project sponsor, the Neighborhood Partnership Housing Development Fund Corporation (NPHDFC), for the disposition of City owned property and designation of the site as an Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP). The proposal will be developed through HPD's Neighborhood Entrepreneur Program (NEP). The proposed action would facilitate the rehabilitation and restoration of an existing dilapidated 4 story residential building with approximately 8 dwelling units.

The existing building would be substantially rehabilitated because the building is in need of structural repairs to the roof and floors. Mechanical systems, including plumbing, heat, electrical and sprinkler systems would be completely replaced. The interior of the building would be reconfigured to create 4 dwelling units. In addition, repairs would be made to the building's façade and front stoop and windows and doors would be replaced. Construction activity would occur in accordance with the R7-2 zoning regulations. No change to building bulk (size and height) would result from the proposed action. The project site is within the LPC and S/NR eligible Dorrance Brooks Square Historic District.

The project is located at 305 West 138th Street in the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, Community District 10, New York.
