Negative Declaration

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 83 Walker Street will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, 83 Walker Street, for a special permit pursuant to the New York City Zoning Resolution (ZR) section 74-712(b) to modify the maximum base height requirements of ZR Section 23-633(d) and the maximum street wall height provisions of ZR Section 23-692. The proposed action would facilitate a proposal by the applicant to develop a new nine story residential building. Section 23-633 requires that buildings in C6-2A districts have a maximum base height of 85 feet and a maximum building height of 120 feet. The proposed building would exceed this base height, rising without a setback to a building height of 100 feet 11 inches.

Specifically, under the special permit, the proposed action would allow a 9 story, 100 foot 11 inch tall residential building, with approximately 17,392 gross square feet and 9 residential units. The first and cellar floor would be occupied with by a single residential duplex and the second through ninth floors would each have one residential unit. The project site is currently a public parking lot.

Section 23-692, also known as the "Sliver Rule", limits the heights of new buildings with less than 45 feet of street frontage in certain districts, including C6-2A districts. The existing regulations limit the street wall of the new building to 81 feet, however the proposed actions would allow the street wall to exceed that limit, and rise to 104 feet, 11 inches, to the top of the parapet.

The site is located in a C6-2A zoning district, and is surrounded by C6-4 and C6-4A zoning districts to the south, M1-5 district to the north, and Area B1 of the Tribeca Mixed-Use Special District to the west. The maximum commercial floor area ratio (FAR) in a C6-2A zoning district is 6.0 and residential FAR of 6.02.

Absent the proposed action, the project site would be developed with the as-of-right 7 story, 81 foot residential development, with approximately 14,060 gross square feet and no parking would be provided. The build year for the project is 2014.

The project is located at 83 Walker Street, which is bounded by Walker Street, Lafayette Street, White Street, and Cortlandt Alley in the Tribeca East Historic neighborhood of Manhattan, Community District 1, New York..
