ENB - Region 2 Notices 2/18/2009

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Fordham University Lincoln Center Master Plan. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on March 4, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. at the Spector Hall, Department of City Planning, 22 Reade Street, New York, NY. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until March 16, 2009. The DEIS is available on the NYC Department of City Planning website at the following link: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/env_review/fordham.shtml.

The action involves the development of a Master Plan to provide about 2.35 million square feet of additional gross floor area at its Lincoln Center campus on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The proposed campus development would include 1,607,460 gross square feet of additional academic and dormitory space. The Master Plan would also provide for about 736,504 gross square feet of new residential space (in two buildings on the northwest and southwest corners of the superblock to be built by private developers). In addition, accessory parking totaling approximately 470 spaces would be provided in below grade parking garages. Entrances to the parking garages would be on West 61st and West 62nd Streets, while service entries for Fordham would be on West 60th, West 61st, and West 62nd Streets. Development is expected to occur in two phases with Phase I complete by 2014 and Phase II (full development) complete by 2032. The project site occupies a superblock bounded by Columbus Avenue, Amsterdam Avenue, West 60th Street and West 62nd Street immediately south of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, in Community Board 7, Upper West Side, Manhattan, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed 363-365 Bond Street. The action involves the application by Toll Brothers, Inc., seeking discretionary City and State actions in connection with the redevelopment of two blocks located along the west waterfront of the Gowanus Canal. The FEIS is available upon request from the Lead Agency and will also be made available for download at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/env_review/eis.shtml.

The proposed actions include a zoning text amendment and a related zoning map amendment to change an existing M2-1 zoning district to a Special Mixed Use District: M1-4/R7-2 (MX). Additional text amendments would add R7-2 districts within Community District 6 in Brooklyn to the list of residential districts in which the Inclusionary Housing Program would be applicable within certain designated areas including the proposed Special Mixed-Use District. The applicant is also seeking a special permit pursuant to modify the height, setback, inner courtyard, and rear yards requirements within a General Large-Scale Development. Discretionary approvals from State and Federal agencies, including the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (US ACOE) will also be required, since the project proposes new stormwater outfalls to the Gowanus Canal, the installation of a new sheet-pile bulkhead along the canal, and possible dewatering during construction. The proposed actions would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to redevelop the parcels with a mix of residential (market rate and affordable), commercial, community facility, and open space uses. The project is bounded by the midpoints of Carroll Street to the north, Bond Street to the west, 2nd Street to the south, and the channel of the Gowanus Canal to the east in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn Community District 6, New York.
