Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Bronx County (Bronx) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Lower Concourse Rezoning and Related Actions. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on April 1, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. at the Spector Hall, New York City Department of City Planning. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until April 13, 2009. The DEIS is available for review from the conact person listed below and at the following wbsite: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/env_review/eis.shtml. The action involves the proposal of zoning map and text amendments for an area encompassing approximately 30 blocks in the South Bronx. The proposed action would change the area's underlying zoning from manufacturing to mixed-use with residential and commercial uses, while preserving the existing light industrial uses in the area. The proposed zoning text amendments would include zoning text amendments to establish a Special Mixed-Use District (MX), modify food store regulations within the rezoning area and Bronx Community District 1, and establish the Inclusionary Housing program within the rezoning area. Text amendments are also proposed to establish a waterfront access plan and special district in the area located along the Harlem River waterfront between Exterior Street and the Harlem River, north of the prolongation of Park Avenue and south of East 149th Street. The project is located on approximately 30 blocks in Community District 1 of the Bronx, New York and is generally bounded by East 149th Street and East 144th Street to the north, the Major Deegan Expressway and Park Avenue to the south, Morris and Lincoln Avenues to the east, and the Harlem River to the west.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed 770 111th Avenue Mixed Use Development Rezoning. The action involves the proposal by the applicant, Two Trees, for several discretionary actions in connection with a proposed development. The following discretionary approvals from the NYC City Planning Commission: a zoning map amendment, two zoning text amendments, and a special permit pursuant to a general large-scale development. Additionally, the proposal involves a special permit from the NYC Board of Standards and Appeals (BSA), approval of NY State Housing Finance Agency (HFA) tax exempt bond financing under its 80/20 affordable housing program, and a Site Selection/Acquisition application from NYPD for a mounted police facility. These actions would facilitate a proposed approximately 1.3 million gross square foot mixed-use development rising to a maximum of approximately 350 feet, including two mechanical levels above the top residential story, with three cellar levels on a 94,463 square foot site in the Clinton neighborhood in Manhattan. The applicant's intended development program includes the following uses (all approximate): 900 rental dwelling units (on floors 3 through 30), 8,800 gross square feet of local retail (on ground floor); 20,000 gross square feet of health club space (on the third floor); 330,000 gross square feet of automobile sales, preparation, and repairs space (on the ground floor and in three cellar levels); 36,000 gross square feet of NYPD Mounted Unit facility, including stable and related space (on the ground floor and mezzanine); and up to 225 accessory parking spaces (on the second floor). Twenty percent of the residential units, approximately 180 dwelling units, would be affordable housing units. The project is located on the western portion of the block bounded by West 54th Street, Tenth Avenue, West 53rd Street, and Eleventh Avenue in the Special Clinton District within Manhattan Community District 4, New York.
