The action involves a proposal by the New York City Department of City Planning (NYC DCP) for a zoning map amendment to rezone all or portions of a six-block area from C6-1 to C1-6A.

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Sugar Hill Rezoning. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held at a later date to be announced, in conjunction with the New York City Planning Commission's citywide public hearing pursuant to ULURP. Advance notice will be given of the time and place of the hearing. Written comments on the Draft EIS are requested and would be received and considered by the Lead Agency until the 10th calendar day following the close of the public hearing. Copies of the Draft EIS may be obtained from the Environmental Assessment and Review Division, New York City Department of City Planning, 22 Reade Street, Room 4E, New York, NY 10007, Robert Dobruskin, Phone: (212) 720-3423; or from the Office of Environmental Coordination, 253 Broadway, 14th Floor, New York, NY 10038, Robert Kulikowski, Phone: (212) 788-9956 and online at the New York City Department of City Planning's website at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/env_review/eis.shtml.

The action involves a set of actions that are being proposed, which are intended to facilitate the redevelopment of a site in the Hamilton Heights North neighborhood of West Harlem. The requested actions include: (1) a zoning map change from C8-3 and R7-2 to a R8A residential zoning district; (2) acquisition/disposition of City-owned property, in the form of an exchange of easements between the applicant and the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (NYC DCAS); and (3) financing from the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD), the New York State Division of Housing & Community Renewal (NYS DHCR), and the New York State Office of Temporary Disability Assistance for the residential component of the Proposed Development. Broadway Housing Communities (BHC) is the applicant for the proposed rezoning and funding actions; applicants for acquisition/disposition action are BHC, NYC DCAS (for acquisition and disposition), and New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) (for acquisition). The Proposed Action would enable the applicant, BHC, to construct a mixed-use building on a parcel within the proposed rezoning area. The proposed action would facilitate construction of an approximately 169,333 gross square foot, 13 story mixed-use building on the proposed development site. The existing 300 space garage structure currently on the site would be demolished to allow construction of the new building. The proposed development would include approximately 124 residential units, all of which would be affordable; an approximately 18,036 square foot museum; a 12,196 square foot day care facility (100 children capacity); 2,350 square foot of office space; and a 114 space below-grade accessory parking garage. By combining a permanent affordable place to live with comprehensive educational, family and cultural resources, the Proposed Development seeks to provide much needed services for New York's low-income children and families. It is expected that construction on the Proposed Development Site would commence in late 2010 with the demolition of the existing structure and site excavation, and the proposed development is expected to be completed by late 2012.

The proposed development site and rezoning area are located within the State and National Register-listed (S/NR) Sugar Hill Historic District, and the existing 2 story garage building on the proposed development site has been identified as a contributing building in that district. A portion of the rezoning area also falls within the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (NYC LPC) designated Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Historic District. The project is located in Manhattan, New York in the Hamilton Heights North neighborhood of West Harlem and is bounded by West 155th Street to the north, St. Nicholas Avenue to the west, St. Nicholas Place to the east, and West 153rd Street to the south.
