A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on June 14, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. at the City of New Rochelle Council Chambers, City Hall, 515 North Avenue, New Rochelle, NY 10801. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. on June 24, 2011. The Draft Eis is available on line at: http://www.newrochelleny.com/.
The action involves the development of a rental apartment building which will include 98 apartments (5 studios, 41 one bedroom, and 52 two bedroom apartments), approximately 1,878 square feet of ground floor retail space. With regard to parking, as required by Code (§ 331-126) a total of 100 spaces are required including 98 for residential and 2 for retail. The residential requirement will be satisfied by the 98 indoor spaces (intended for the use of residents) while the retail requirement will be satisfied by designating 2 of the 7 surface spaces for retail use only. The remaining 5 surface spaces will be designated as "visitor parking" and will be available for use by retail customers or the residents' visitors. Covered parking will be provided to the residents for free. The proposal is for a mixed income building consisting of 39 units for households earning up to 60% of Westchester's Area Median Income (AMI) of $104,700, 19 units for households earning up to 90% of the AMI and 39 market rate units.
The components of the Proposed Action include: approval of zoning density bonuses from an underlying 2.0 FAR to a 4.6 FAR; site plan approval; a variance for surface level parking; and a waiver to allow a project that is not located within 500 feet of municipal parking, within the DB zoning district where a DDB floating zone overlay zone needs to be applied.
Pursuant to § 331-85.3 C (5), the project will require a waiver to allow a project that is not located within 500 feet of municipal parking, within the DB zoning district where a DDB floating zone overlay zone has been applied. Therefore, as part of this application, a waiver is requested from the City Council.
Further, since the zoning code requires that all required parking is to be subsurface, the proposed project will require a variance for the seven surface parking spaces.
Pursuant to the New Rochelle Zoning Code (see Section 331-154 Downtown Density Bonus (DDB) Floating Overlay Zone), the density bonuses to be applied to the development consists of additional FAR and height.
The project is located a 0.551 acre property at 17 Locust Avenue in the City of New Rochelle, New York. The project block is bounded by Locust Avenue to the west, Main Street to the north, and Franklin Avenue to the east. Clinton Place runs perpendicular to and terminates at the project site.
