Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Admirals Row Plaza. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at Spector Hall at the New York City Department of City Planning located at 22 Reade Street, New York, NY 10007. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until Monday, September 19, 2011. The Draft EIS is available from the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC), 63 Flushing Avenue, Unit 300, Bldg 292, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11205 and on line at: http://www.nyc.gov/oec.

The action involves proposal by the BNYDC to develop approximately 293,294 total square feet of development, including a supermarket of approximately 74,161 square feet, approximately 79,068 square feet of neighborhood-oriented retail ranging from small local stores to destination retailers, approximately 7,024 square feet of community facility/non-profit office space, approximately 127,364 square feet of light industrial space, and approximately 215 square feet of enclosed bicycle parking space. In addition, approximately 295 accessory parking spaces would be provided in a surface lot. The light industrial space would be developed above the supermarket and would have a separate entrance from inside the Brooklyn Navy Yard industrial park, which borders the project site. Development would incorporate both new construction and the rehabilitation and/or reconstruction and adaptive reuse of two existing historic structures, one of the Officers' Quarters known as Building B and the Timber Shed. In total, three new buildings would be developed, ranging in height from approximately 32 feet to 99 feet.

The new development would be compliant with New York City Local Law 86 of 2005 and would be designed to meet the standards for LEED Silver Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. Work on Building B would meet the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties and work on the Timber Shed would seek to meet those Standards. The proposed project would result in the demolition of the remainder of the existing historic structures located on the project site.

Other public actions required for the proposed project include approval of acquisition of the site by the City of New York from the federal government and disposition of the site by the City to BNYDC pursuant to a long-term Master Lease.

The project is located at the northeasterly corner of Navy and Nassau Streets, Brooklyn, New York.
