Richmond County (Staten Island) - The New York City Mayor for Economic Development, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Lighthouse Point will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an application by 5 Bay Street LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Triangle Equities Development Company, and the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYC EDC) (collectively, the applicant), for approval to enter into a 49 year lease. Triangle Equities Development Company or one of its affiliates would have an option to purchase the property at the end of full project construction. The City-owned property was approved for disposition in July 2000, and requires both Borough Board and Mayoral approvals pursuant to New York City Charter Section 384(b)(4), which are discretionary actions subject to the New York City Environmental Quality Review (CEQR). The Applicant is also seeking other New York City approvals including two waterfront certifications from the New York City Planning Commission Chair pursuant to ZR § 62-811 for waterfront public access and visual corridors and a certification pursuant to ZR § 62-812 for a zoning lot subdivision of a waterfront block. Additionally, the Applicant is requesting approval from the New York City Industrial Development Agency (NYC IDA) for Mortgage Recording Tax Exemption. As the project site contains existing historic buildings, consultation, review and coordination from the New York State Office of Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP) and a New York City Landmark Preservation Commission (NYC LPC) Binding Report would also be required. In addition, the Applicant is requesting from the New York City Board of Standards and Appeals (NYC BSA) a special permit pursuant to ZR § 73-432 for a reduction of required parking. The project is located on Bay Street in the Borough of Staten Island, New York.
