Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Broadway Triangle. Copies of the Final EIS may be obtained from the contact person listed below or from Robert Kulikowski, Mayor's Office of Environmental Coordination, 253 Broadway, 14th Floor, New York, New York 10038, Phone: (212) 788-9956. The documents are also available on NYC HPD's website at: www.nyc.gov/html/hpd/html/developers/Broadway_Triangle_Proposal.shtml.
The action involves the zoning map and text amendments, amendments to the Broadway Triangle Urban Renewal Plan (URP), and the disposition of City-owned property.
Under the Proposed Action (which has a build year of 2018), the zoning of the Project Area would change from M1-2, M3-1, and C8-2 to R6A, R6A/C2-4, R7A, R7A/C2-4, and C4-3. The Proposed Action would result in an overall loss in vacant, auto-related, commercial, and manufacturing/storage uses and a net increase of approximately 1,851 residential units (of which 844 would be affordable), 103,286 square feet of retail space and 35,456 square feet of community facility space. In addition, funding may be sought from various federal, state, and local agencies. The project is located in the blocks generally bounded by Flushing Avenue to the south, Throop Avenue to the east, Lynch Street to the north, and Union Avenue, Walton Street, and Harrison Avenue to the west within a nine block area of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Community District 1, New York.
