Positive Declaration and Public Scoping

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Memorial Sloan Kettering - City University of New York (CUNY) Hunter College may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until November 14, 2012. A public scoping session will be held on November 1, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, East 68 Street between Lexington and Park Avenues, New York, NY. The Environmental Assessment Statement (EAS), Positive Declaration, and Draft Scope available at: www.nyc.gov/oec.

The action involves a proposal by Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) to build a new ambulatory care center (ACC), while CUNY proposes to build the Hunter College Science and Health Professions Building (CUNY-Hunter Building). The proposed buildings would be built to an overall FAR of 12.0 which would be 793,332 square feet of zoning floor area, with full lot coverage over the project site. The project site is largely vacant with standing remnants of the walls of a former garage structure. The western portion is occupied by a surface public parking lot with a capacity of 128 cars. The MSK ACC Building would stand approximately 23 stories (approximately 449 feet) tall on a footprint of 39,667 square feet. In a gross floor area of 730,133 square feet, it would contain state-of-the-art ambulatory care facilities, including clinics for dermatological, breast, and prostate cancers; consultation rooms; infusion rooms; medical/surgical clinic; interventional radiology clinic; bone marrow transplant clinic; academic offices; a pharmacy; and conference rooms as well as 200 to 225 accessory parking spaces on the lower levels of the site for patients and visitors. The MSK ACC would be expected to treat approximately 1,335 patients daily. The CUNY-Hunter Building would stand approximately 18 stories (approximately 338 feet) tall on a footprint of 26,444 square feet. In its gross floor area of 362,655 square feet, it would house teaching and research laboratories, class rooms, a learning center, a 350 seat lecture hall, faculty offices, and a vivarium. Approximately 1,130 undergraduates and 1,219 graduate students would come to classes and laboratories in this building. In addition students from the main Hunter College campus at Lexington Avenue and East 68th Street would attend lectures in the lecture hall. East 74th Street would serve as the main entrance for both buildings. The service entrances for both buildings would be on East 73rd Street, and both buildings would be designed to allow trucks to maneuver inside the buildings. In addition, MSK would have two ambulance bays as well as a pedestrian staff entrance on East 73rd Street.

The project is located on the block bounded by FDR Drive, E 74 Street, York Avenue and East 73 Street in the Borough of Manhattan, New York.
