ENB - Region 2 Notices 5/15/2013

Negative Declaration

Bronx County (Bronx) - The New York City HPD, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 748 Beck Street will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application by HPD, on behalf of the sponsor, Restoring Communities HDFC, for the disposition of City-owned property and designation of the project site as an Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP). In addition, the project sponsor is requesting construction financing from HPD to facilitate the substantial rehabilitation of an existing five-story residential building. The building is located at 748 Beck Street (Block 2707, Lot 42), in the Longwood neighborhood of the Bronx, Community District 2. The existing city-owned building contains 10 dwelling units which are all currently vacant. Under the proposed actions, substantial rehabilitation would occur which would result in a total of 10 affordable units and approximately 4,000 square feet of space. No changes to the building's overall floor area, height, or footprint are proposed. The project site is located within the Longwood LPC and State/National Register Historic District and is therefore, considered a Type I action under SEQRA. The project is located at 748 Beck Street, Bronx, New York.

New York County (Manhattan) - The City of New York HPD, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 244-246 Elizabeth Street (13HPD063M) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application by HPD, on behalf of the project sponsor, Community Renewal HDFC, for the disposition of City owned property and designation of the project site (244-246 Elizabeth Street) as an Urban Development Action Area Project (UDAAP). In addition, the project sponsor is requesting construction financing from HPD to facilitate the rehabilitation of the 5-story, 20-unit residential building on the site.

The proposed project is located within the Chinatown/Little Italy National Register Historic District and is therefore considered a Type I action under CEQR. The proposed rehabilitation work is intended to address deteriorated conditions in the building and restore the building's facade to its original condition. In the event that any State or Federal funding is sought in connection with the proposed project, the sponsor would be required to consult with the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation under Section 14.09 of the New York State Historic Preservation Act and/or Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
