Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Planning Commission, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Vanderbilt Corridor and One Vanderbilt. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on February 4, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at the National Museum of the American Indian, Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House, One Bowling Green, New York, NY. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until February 7, 2015. The Draft EIS is available from the Environmental Assessment and Review Division, New York City Department of City Planning, 22 Reade Street, Room 4E, New York, NY, 10007 and on line at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcp/html/env_review/eis.shtml.

The action involves a proposal by the New York City Department of City Planning (NYC DCP) and a private applicant, Green 317 Madison LLC (317 Madison), for a series of proposed discretionary actions that would facilitate commercial development between Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues in East Midtown Manhattan, improve pedestrian circulation within Grand Central Terminal and its vicinity, and allow greater opportunity for area landmarks to transfer their unused development rights. NYC DCP is proposing a zoning text amendment and City Map amendment affecting the five blocks along the west side of Vanderbilt Avenue between East 42nd and East 47th Streets and the portion of Vanderbilt Avenue between East 42nd and East 43rd Streets. 317 Madison is requesting special permits pursuant to the above-referenced zoning text amendment for a site bounded by East 42nd and East 43rd Streets and Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues (One Vanderbilt site).

The proposed actions would allow 317 Madison to construct an approximately 1.8 million gross square foot 30.0 FAR building containing a mix of uses including office, trading floors, retail, restaurant, transit access, a transit hall at ground level, and rooftop amenity space. Although there are no specific proposals at this time to redevelop the four blocks of the proposed Vanderbilt Corridor north of the One Vanderbilt site, the Draft EIS considers the potential redevelopment of two properties on these blocks at a conceptual level with an analysis year of 2033.

The project is located between Madison Avenue and Vanderbilt Avenue in East Midtown Manhattan, New York.
