Negative Declaration

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed St. Joseph's College (SJC) Brooklyn Campus Athletic Facility project will not have a significant environmental impact. The action involves the DASNY's authorization of the issuance of tax-exempt Dormitory Authority obligations in an amount not to exceed $35 million on behalf of the College. The proceeds of the tax-exempt bond issuance would be used, in part, to finance the proposed project, which would involve the construction of an as-of-right, approximately 44,000 gross square foot athletic facility building on the College's Brooklyn Campus. The proposed project would consist of an approximately 29,071 gross square foot three-story athletic facility containing a gymnasium that would be designed to house a National Collegiate Athletic Association-regulated basketball court with seating for 270 spectators, men's and women's locker rooms for both visiting teams and SJC teams, athletic department offices, a fitness center, a multiple purpose room, a nurse/training room, and restrooms. The proposed building would also include 90 below-grade parking spaces for use by SJC faculty and students only. The below-grade parking level would consist of approximately 15,000 gross square foot of the total 44,000 gross square foot athletic facility building. The space vacated by St. Joseph's athletic department would be reused by the college for academic purposes. The project is located at 212 Vanderbilt Avenue, Borough of Brooklyn, Kings County, New York.

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New York City College of Technology (City Tech) Academic Building Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the DASNY's authorization of the expenditure of tax-exempt bond proceeds from the State of New York Personal Income Tax Revenue Bond Program for the Proposed Project as part of The City University of New York (CUNY) Program. The proceeds of the tax-exempt bond issuance would be used to finance the Proposed Project, which would consist of the construction of an approximately 358,000 gross square foot, 8-story (plus 2-level basement) academic building that would include classrooms, laboratory space, a gymnasium, an auditorium, a CUNY Express information facility, and a 20-space underground garage. The Proposed Project would also include the transfer of an approximately 24,700 gross square foot portion of the 63,460 gross square foot project site and up to 29,000 gross square foot of the developable air rights from the New York City Department of Education (NYC DOE) through the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services (NYC DCAS) to DASNY on behalf of CUNY.

The Proposed Project would provide 8 above-grade floors of additional classrooms, laboratories, and administrative space for City Tech's sciences and allied health programs, which are currently housed in constrained facilities on other parts of the campus. The new building would consist of 35 laboratories and 16 classrooms for study in the fields of Biological Sciences, Chemical Technology, Dental Hygiene, Health Services Administration, Human Services, Nursing, Radiological Technology, Restorative Dentistry, and Vision Care Technology. The proposed building would also include a new state-of-the-art 1,000 seat auditorium on the ground-floor level, and the two below-grade floors would include a 770 person capacity gymnasium, a fitness center, locker rooms, and approximately 20 accessory parking spaces. The proposed auditorium and gymnasium would be updated replacements of similar facilities in City Tech's existing 2 story, approximately 60,000 gross square foot Klitgord Auditorium building (Klitgord Building). Demolition of City Tech's existing Klitgord Building, along with the adjacent 1 story television studio (TV Studio) and 62 space, accessory surface parking lot, both of which are under the jurisdiction of the NYC DOE, would be required as part of the Proposed Project. The project is located at 285 Jay Street in the Borough of Brooklyn, New York.
